Farmers throughout Ontario can expect to be working in some soggy conditions in September.
An early look at The Weather Network’s monthly forecast shows some days with steady rainfall in some parts of the province.
Producers in Guelph can expect rain on September 6 and 11. The 6th could provide 3.4mm of rain and the 11th could see 12.1mm.
In London, these two days could also see significant rainfall. About 4.4mm of rain could fall on September 6, and 12.2mm on September 11.
Producers in Windsor could experience rain on three days in September, with the heaviest rainfall happening towards the end of the month. On September 8, up to 6.3mm of rain could fall, followed by about 4.4mm on September 10 and another 6.4mm on September 11.
