ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — This autumn could go down as the Twin Cities’ driest autumn on record.

The state Climatology Office says so far from Sept. 1 to Nov. 17 only 1.06 inches of precipitation has been recorded at Twin Cities International Airport. That is nearly 5.5 inches below normal.

If the precipitation total through the end of November is less than .48 of an inch, 2011 will be the driest autumn in the Twin Cities since record-keeping began in 1871.

Currently, the driest September-through-November on record for the Twin Cities is 1889 with 1.54 inches.
