September is typically our third wettest month in El Paso and it looks like we have a decent chance of reaching that mark. The Climate Prediction Center is expecting our part of the nation to see near normal precipitation. Now this isn't a guarantee, but if the forecast holds, we'll pick up some much needed rain. Much of the nation will see near normal precip for the month. This is great news for drought stricken South Texas, which desperately needs rain.
