For DIT... firing burning in the root system of trees near Killington for 3 days now.

https://vtdigger.org/2020/09/21/killington-forest-fire-burns-underground-for-three-days-and-counting/

Reminds me of October 1963 in the town north of where I lived - had that phenomenon going on for more than a month until 4" from a SE storm in early November drowned it.  The fire covered 3,000 acres, most within a State Forest.

Edit:  The warmup has begun, only 26 here this morning after 29/25/25.  Was cloudy at 7 but dim sun now with light winds.  Early GFS had 1"+ for this coming Monday.  We'll watch it shrink between now and then.

Crazy how fast it happens.  August was the wettest month of the summer.  Guess 3 weeks of dry is all it takes for some wells.

August had only 1.79" here though June-July total was close to average.  September is at 0.15" to date and driest September here is 0.84" in 2014 and driest for any month is 0.31" in April 1999.  Almost a shame to wreck an all-timer only 3 days from being set; drought wouldn't be any worse if it ended on Oct. 1 rather than Sept. 28.

Before our times. Locals judged the weather by signs. One sign for ocean storms was the long rollers. Shown here on the Newport Cam. Fisherman of yore knew to stay in port

Yeah we got the tropical storm in August with 2+ inches that day...that certainly helped that month’s rain total.

I’m only at 0.35” for September to date.  I don’t think I can ever remember any month under 1”, or even 1.5” since I’ve lived here.

It can read in the 50's -60's in the winter with temps in the 20's outside if there is full sun.

BOS had a trace that month.

Gives legitimacy to the number.  It's tough to know sometimes given that these ASOS can go offline for periods of time.

12Z GFS was a soaker next week. Like I said...timing is going to be an issue. You can't go by every model run verbatim. Look at the big picture. Trough to the west.
