THIS WAS A VERY DRY MONTH FOR YAKUTAT WITH ONLY 9.37 INCHES OF PRECIPITATION, WHICH
IS ABOUT 5 INCHES LESS THAN A NOVEMBER AVERAGE. THERE WERE ONLY 2 DAYS OF RAINFALL
EQUIVALENT OF GTE 1 INCH. HIGH PRESSURE WAS PREVALENT THROUGHOUT THE MONTH GIVING
US A PREVALENT E-NE FLOW OF WINDS AVERAGING 3.4 KNOTS. WE DID SEE A PATTERN CHANGE
TOWARD THE END OF THE MONTH AND TEMPERATURES BEGAN TO DIP THE LAST TWO WEEKS
LEADING TO OUR FIRST SNOWFALL ON THE 28TH WITH MORE SIGNIFICANT ACCUMULATION ON THE
30TH.
