Vancouver has unofficially recorded its' driest August through September ever. 

It's a record that dates back 105 years to 1907. That year, Vancouver saw 9.4 mm of rain. This year, only 7.9 mm fell between August 1 and September 30. 

Normally, in that period of time, Vancouver would have been drenched with 92.6 mm of rain. 

Other parts of British Columbia have been dry in recent weeks, as well. Records were also broken from August to September in Agassiz, Abbotsford, Victoria and Nanaimo. In the northeast, Fort St. John has experienced one of its driest three month periods since record keeping began.
