SEPTEMBER 2022 FINISHED WARMER THAN NORMAL ACROSS THE REGION.
PRECIPITATION WAS BELOW NORMAL OVER MOST OF CENTRAL WASHINGTON. THE
MONTH STARTED OFF HOT WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES ON THE 2ND REACHING THE
MID 90S IN WENATCHEE. FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE MONTH SMOKE FROM AREA
WILDFIRES WAS THE MAIN STORY, ALONG WITH SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS OVER
THE REGION ON THE 13TH.  ALTHOUGH A BRIEF DUST STORM ON THE 8TH WAS
ALSO NOTEWORTHY, CONTRIBUTING TO SEVERAL COLLISIONS ON HIGHWAY 2
NEAR HARTLINE.  THE 8TH THROUGH THE 15TH AS WELL AS THE 21ST THROUGH
THE 28TH BROUGHT SMOKE INT THE WENATCHEE AREA. WENATCHEE FOR SEVERAL
DAYS REPORTED AT LEAST A BRIEF PERIOD OF UNHEALTHY AIR QUALITY.
MEANWHILE AROUND LAKE WENATCHEE, CLOSER PROXIMITY TO THE FIRES
CONTRIBUTED TO VERY HEALTHY TO HAZARDOUS AIR QUALITY AT TIMES.
REGARDING THE THUNDERSTORMS ON THE 13TH, ABUNDANT LIGHTNING WAS
OBSERVED OVER THE REGION. A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WITH QUARTER SIZED
HAIL OCCURRED 7 MILES SE OF OKANOGAN.  MEANWHILE IN OKANOGAN AND
MALAGA DIME SIZE HAIL WAS REPORTED.  ON THE 14TH A THUNDERSTORM
PRODUCED HEAVY RAIN ON SR 20, 7 MILES WNW OF MAZAMA, WHICH PRODUCED
A DEBRIS FLOW.

NO RECORDS WERE SET DURING THE MONTH AT THE WENATCHEE AIRPORT.
