September was “an ideal late-summer month,” Richard G. Hendrickson wrote in his monthly weather report from Bridgehampton.
Mr. Hendrickson, a United States Cooperative weather observer, recorded daytime highs in the 70s during the first half of the month and mainly in the 60s in the second half. Nights began mainly in the 60s, then dropped mostly into the 40s by month’s end.
Wilfred G. Mitchell, a summer resident of Montauk since the 1960s, died on Sunday at his house there, surrounded by family. Mr. Mitchell had been diagnosed with dementia some time ago. He was 83.
