BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) - The climatologist at South Dakota State University says parts of western South Dakota set new precipitation records in September.

Dennis Todey (TAHD’-ee) says rainfall in and around the Black Hills totaled 3 to 5 inches or slightly more. Much of Rapid City got 4 to 5 inches, with reports of more than 5 inches in the Edgemont area - a third of the annual average.

Todey says places that set precipitation records in September include Edgemont, Oral and Wind Cave National Park.

He says the outlook for October - and the fall harvest - shows increased chances for wetter conditions, mainly over the eastern parts of the state.
