While there's been more dry days through the month compared to wet ones, Rockford and other Stateline areas have received decent amounts of rain. There have been two days in where Rockford alone received over an inch of rain.
Typically the month receives about 2.50" of rain, but already the month's total has added up to just under 3 inches. And, there's more rain in the forecast coming up by the end of the weekend with a potent cold front posed to arrive Sunday afternoon.
Along with the rain, its been a fairly warm month as well. So far its one of the warmest Septembers on record, but we'll have to wait until the end of the month to see exactly where we rank. As it stands now, the monthly average (average of the daily high and low all month) has reached almost 71° which is 5° above the monthly average.
Temperatures next week however will fall into the 60's through Wednesday.
