Armagh Observatory reports that September 2014 was
exceptionally dry, with just 3.55 mm of precipitation, which is
nearly 20 times less than the month’s average rainfall. This was
the second driest September on record at Armagh, that is, since
daily rainfall records began in 1838; and the driest September for
120 years, that is since the very dry September 1894. The five
driest Septembers recorded at Armagh are now 1894 (2.70 mm),
2014 (3.55 mm), 1933 and 1986 (both 4.20 mm), and 1865
(8.10 mm). The wettest day was the 22nd, with a total
precipitation of just 1.2 mm.
