September ended this week warm and wet. BWI was 2 degrees above the long-term average, despite a cool second half. We had four days in the 90s, two in the 60s. Hanna and last weekend's Atlantic storm pushed BWI rain totals 3.24 inches above the norm, to 7.22 inches. The cooling season is almost over, with cooling degree days - a measure of energy demand - running 4.5 percent above the 30-year average.
