RIP Summer.
October 01, 2013 - 2:17 PM

PENTICTON - Maybe we should be afraid of Friday the 13th—that's the date summer was murdered in the South Okanagan.

Friday, Sept.13 was the hottest day of the month at 28.9 Celsius, but the thermometer started bleeding out after that, falling almost four degrees by Sept. 16. It never recovered.

September was already in poor health, spilling 71.5 mm of rain, including one letting of 17.4 mm on Sept. 4, then 12.6 mm dripped on Sept. 30, according to Environment Canada records.

The patient also experienced high winds of 72 km/h on Sept. 6, 85 km/h on Sept. 16 and 76 km/h gusts on Sept. 29.
