...NOVEMBER WAS COOL WITH NEAR NORMAL PRECIPITATION...

WHILE THE LAST WEEK OF NOVEMBER EXPERIENCED NEAR NORMAL TO ABOVE
NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND BELOW NORMAL PRECIPITATION...THE BEGINNING
TO MIDDLE PORTION OF THE MONTH WAS COLD AND GENERALLY WET. THE
COOLER TEMPERATURES WERE A REVERSAL FROM A VERY WARM BUT WET
OCTOBER. DESPITE BEING COOL AND WET, ONLY A TRACE OF SNOWFALL WAS
RECORDED DURING THE ENTIRE MONTH.

THE AVERAGE MONTHLY TEMPERATURE WAS 38.9 DEGREES, 1.8 DEGREES BELOW
NORMAL. THIS RANKED AS THE 39TH COOLEST NOVEMBER ON RECORD AT SOUTH
BEND. THE WARMEST TEMPERATURE WAS 61 ON THE 5TH AND 28TH. THE
COLDEST TEMPERATURE OF 21 OCCURRED ON THE 10TH AND 26TH.

TOTAL PRECIPITATION FOR THE MONTH WAS 3.40 INCHES WHICH WAS 0.13
INCHES ABOVE NORMAL. THIS RANKED AS THE 37TH WETTEST NOVEMBER ON
RECORD. NEARLY HALF OF THE TOTAL MONTHLY PRECIPITATION FELL ON JUST
TWO DAYS, THE 17TH AND 18TH WITH 1.56 INCHES BEING MEASURED. A TOTAL
OF 11 DAYS SAW MEASURABLE PRECIPITATION FALL.

THERE WAS ONLY A TRACE OF SNOWFALL RECORDED IN NOVEMBER. SINCE A
TRACE IS CONSIDERED NON-MEASURABLE, THIS TIED WITH 7 OTHER YEARS IN
WHICH NO MEASURABLE SNOWFALL OCCURRED IN NOVEMBER. FIVE OF THESE 8
YEARS WITH NO MEASURABLE SNOWFALL HAVE OCCURRED SINCE 2001.
