September Precipitation Levels Were Down from Last Year

Some rain, but not a lot, is the overall summary for precipitation received throughout sections of southeast Colorado for September.  The National Weather Service reported that some areas of the state did well for precipitation received last month and a report from the Colorado Division of Water Resources indicates the latest long term experimental forecast released September 24, shows a chance of increased precipitation over the eastern plains and drier conditions over the four corners region.  While conditions have switched to an El Nino, which often favors wetter conditions in Colorado, this El Nino is very weak, and is not expected to result in ‘typical’ conditions.
