September Summary

September 2013 was a very quiet month in southern Indiana and central Kentucky.  Temperatures were just slightly warmer than normal and rainfall was within an inch or two of normal in most spots.  There were only two instances of severe weather during the month when trees were blown down by local storms on the 11th in Hardin and Lincoln counties.  By far the wettest weather during the month came on the night of the 20th-21st when a slow moving front and area of low pressure crossed central Kentucky, resulting in two to three inches of rain from Land Between the Lakes to the Louisville and Covington metro areas.
