Second-driest September on record

September 2018 was Victoria's second driest September since comprehensive records began in 1900. That makes it the driest September since 1914 and the ninth consecutive month of below average rainfall for the State. Most of Victoria recorded rainfall in the lowest 10% of the historic record for September. There were also patches of lowest September rainfall on record across Victoria.



Clear skies and dry soils meant very much cooler than average overnight temperatures. Large parts of the north and northwest saw lowest on record monthly minimum temperatures.



Days were warmer than average in East Gippsland, along the border with NSW and parts of the Central District. Elsewhere, daytime temperatures were close to average.



See the September Climate Summary for Victoria for more details.
