Print Email

This November has had a very interesting temperature pattern, shown extreme variation during the month. As the month started temperatures were slightly colder than normal, but that quickly dissipated as the temperatures climbed to record levels. From the 4th through the 15th temperatures soared with the average departure from the normal average of 12.8°F. A record high was set on the 7th with a temperature of 87°F. A front moved through the area on the 16th dropping the temperature to a high of 58°F while the day before the high was 83°F. From the 16th though the 22nd temperatures were below normal, but the air once again began to warm up. Beginning on the 23rd, temperature again reached record levels with record highs on the 23rd and 27th with a high temperature of 84°F on both days. A cold front pushed through the area bringing some much needed rain on the 26th and 27th and lowering temperatures to below normal once again. The month rainfall total was exactly an inch, which is 2.18" below normal. The annual total is now 27.44", exactly 11" below normal for the year, as drought conditions persisted throughout the month.
