Wet Autumn

With the northwest corner of North Dakota being the exception, almost all other locations have already recorded more rain than the average for the entire autumn season.  The autumn season by definition is from September 1 through November 30.  In turn, after a drier than average winter, spring and summer, autumn will be the first widespread above average precipitation season since the summer of 2020 in the Red River Valley.  In other portions of the state, the first above average season since the fall of 2019.  At the moment the only area that would be considered dry is that northwest corner of the state, with little moisture foreseen in the near future.
