During September the summer heat is intensified by the "siroccos" or desert winds, which can last much longer than the winds of spring. The farmers would dry their figs for winter, and a would make their grapes into raisins, syrup, and wine. The pomegranates and bananas would ripen. Usually around the end of September would be the first shower after a long summer drought.

 

Note: Before the Babylonian captivity this month was referred to as Etanim (1 Kings 8:2).
