September is being considered the second driest on record in the Bulkley Valley and Lakes according to Environment Canada.
Meteorologist Derek Lee said that the region only had 7.7 millimeters recorded which is only 14% of the average precipitation that is usually seen.
Normally, the region will record 53.8 millimeters during the month of September.
Lee also said that last month was warmer than average.
“Our kind of average temperature we saw in September was 11.6 degrees, the usual would’ve been 9.9 and the average anomaly would be 1.7 degrees above average,” he said.
Lee added that above average temperatures are expected to continue until mid-October.
“I think temperature wise we’re going to stay into the high teens and almost reach 20 degrees for the next seven days or so, there may be a little cloud here and there,” he said.
Lee added it is likely that the region will see more storm activity after mid October.
Wednesday is anticipated to be the warmest day of the week with a high of 21.
