REMARKS...

THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER SAW QUITE THE ROLLER-COASTER OF TEMPERATURES.
THE BEGINNING OF THE MONTH WAS MARKED BY REPEATED DAYS OF BELOW
AVERAGE TEMPERATURES. ONE RECORD TEMPERATURE WAS TIED ON NOV 9 WITH
A LOW TEMPERATURE OF -1 DEGREES. TOWARDS THE END OF THE MONTH MOTHER
NATURE FLIPPED THE THERMOSTAT WITH SEVERAL DAYS OF ABOVE AVERAGE
TEMPERATURES. ALTHOUGH NO RECORD HIGHS WERE BROKEN, NOV 29 CAME
CLOSE TO TYING A RECORD HIGH WITH A TEMPERATURE OF 48 DEGREES. THIS
WAS ONE DEGREE SHORT OF TYING THE RECORD HIGH OF 49 DEGREES SET IN
1899.

SIMILAR TO THE SWING IN TEMPERATURES, GRAND FORKS EXPERIENCED A
SWING IN PRECIPITATION WITH MUCH OF THE MONTH`S PRECIPITATION
OCCURING DURING THE FIRST 8 DAYS OF THE MONTH. THE MONTH ENDED WITH
0.55 INCHES OF PRECIP, WHICH IS 0.35 INCHES SHORT OF THE MONTHLY
AVERAGE.

MUCH OF THIS PRECIP FELL IN THE FORM OF SNOW DURING THE FIRST WEEK
OF THE MONTH. 7.6 INCHES OF SNOW FELL THIS MONTH, LEAVING A SNOW
PACK 6 INCHES DEEP. AS MANY IN GRAND FORKS FOUND OUT, IT WOULD TAKE
THE REST OF THE MONTH AND THE ABOVE AVERAGE TEMPERATURES TO FINALLY
MELT THE SNOW PACK.

REMEMBER... THIS DATA IS PROVISIONAL AND SUBJECT TO CHANGE. THE
FINAL AND OFFICIAL RECORDS WILL BE AVAILABLE FROM THE NATIONAL
CENTERS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION (FORMERLY THE NATIONAL CLIMATE
DATA CENTER).
