ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) It's now official. Last month was the second-driest September on record in St. Cloud.

Just .24 of an inch of rain fell. Normally, more than three-inches of rain can be expected during the month.

The only September that was drier in St. Cloud was 1952--when just .07 of an inch of rain fell during the month.

The month ended on a warm note too. Saturday's high in St. Cloud was 84 degrees. That tied a record that's been on the books since 1933. Sunday's high was 80 degrees--which was short of a record--but well above the normal high of 64.
