NOVEMBER 2014 FEATURED DRIER, WARMER THAN NORMAL WEATHER ON AVERAGE,
MAINTAINING THE TREND THIS YEAR OF WARMER THAN NORMAL TEMPERATURES. THE ONLY
RECORD SET IN NOVEMBER WAS FOR LATEST FIRST FROST (FIRST DAY TEMPERATURE DROPS
TO 36 DEGREES OR BELOW), WHICH WAS SET ON THE 11TH, WHEN THE TEMPERATURE
DROPPED TO 30 DEGREES. THE PREVIOUS RECORD WAS NOVEMBER 5TH, 1944. THAT SAID,
DURING THE SECOND WEEK OF NOVEMBER, AN ARCTIC FRONT THAT AFFECTED MOST OF THE
CONUS DIPPED INTO THE NORTHERN ROCKIES AND SPREAD SOUTHWESTWARD TOWARD MEDFORD
OVER THE PERIOD OF SEVERAL DAYS, BRINGING FRIGID TEMPERATURES INCLUDING A LOW
OF 5 DEGREES ON THE 16TH IN LAKEVIEW, AND SET THE STAGE FOR SNOW IN THE
MOUNTAINS. CONDITIONS WEST OF THE CASCADES WERE NOT AS COLD, BUT MEDFORD DID
DROP TO 23 DEGREES ON THE 17TH AND HAD A STRING OF BELOW NORMAL DAYS. THOUGH
THE MONTH WAS DRIER THAN AVERAGE, A FEW SYSTEMS BRINGING PRECIPITATION PASSED
THROUGH, PARTICULARLY FROM THE 21ST TO 22ND, AS A WET WARM FRONT WITH STRONG
DYNAMIC FORCING PASSED THROUGH, DROPPING 0.41 INCHES AND 0.26 INCHES OF
RAINFALL IN MEDFORD ON THE 21ST AND 22ND, RESPECTIVELY.
