The moisture Summit County saw this past weekend accumulated about 0.31-0.42 inches of rain Saturday, Aug. 29, and 0.02-0.10 inches of rain Sunday, Aug. 30, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Russell Danielson.

Danielson said the moisture was needed. The Dillon weather station has recorded only 0.62 inches of precipitation in August. That compares with the August average of 1.93 inches.

Danielson reported that while there will be some light showers Monday evening, the forecast shows dry weather for the rest of the week. However, he said a fall-like weather pattern is on the way, with some cold fronts expected to bring cooler, breezier weather.
