Umbrellas and rubber boots were a necessity for residents in parts of Nova Scotia this September.
In fact, Halifax recorded over 380 mm of rain last month, making it the wettest September since record keeping began. The city was close to breaking an all-time monthly rainfall record as well.
"If Halifax picked up another 0.3 mm of rain, that would have made it the rainiest month ever recorded in the city," says Brian Dillon, a meteorologist at The Weather Network. "It was close, but the 387.1 mm that fell in August 1971 remains the official record for Halifax."
On average, Halifax normally sees about 104 mm of rain in September. This year however, a series of low pressure systems brought prolonged periods of rain to the region.
Tropical Storm Leslie also dumped between 50-100 mm of rain across the province earlier in the month.
