...A COLD MONTH WITH ABOVE NORMAL SNOWFALL IN THE FORT WAYNE AREA...

IT WAS A COLD NOVEMBER WITH ABOVE NORMAL SNOWFALL IN THE FORT WAYNE
AREA. WHILE LAKE EFFECT SNOW WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR MOST OF THE
SNOW OVER NORTH CENTRAL AND NORTHWEST INDIANA...SYSTEM SNOW WAS
RESPONSIBLE FOR MOST OF THE ACCUMULATIONS IN FORT WAYNE...WITH ONE
SYSTEM DROPPING OVER 3 INCHES OF SNOW AT THE AIRPORT. THE TAIL END
OF A FEW LAKE EFFECT SNOW BANDS DID REACH FORT WAYNE DURING THE
MONTH BUT ACCUMULATIONS FROM THOSE WERE LIGHT. DESPITE THE COLD
AND SNOW...THERE WERE BRIEF PERIODS OF WARMTH DURING THE
MONTH...INCLUDING THE FIRST WEEK WITH TEMPERATURES IN THE 60S AND
THE LAST TWO DAYS WHEN HIGHS REACHED THE 50S AND 60S.

THE AVERAGE MONTHLY TEMPERATURE FOR NOVEMBER WAS 34.8 DEGREES...6.6
DEGREES BELOW NORMAL. THIS RANKED AS THE 6TH COLDEST NOVEMBER ON
RECORD IN THE FORT WAYNE AREA DATING BACK TO 1912. THE HIGHEST
TEMPERATURE DURING THE MONTH WAS 64 ON THE 3RD AND THE COLDEST WAS
9 ON THE 18TH AND 21ST. THE MIDDLE OF THE MONTH SAW A STRETCH OF
VERY COLD TEMPERATURES WITH THE FIRST ARCTIC BLAST OF THE SEASON.
THE REMNANTS OF SUPER TYPHOON NURI MOVED OUT OF THE PACIFIC OCEAN AND
INTO THE BERING SEA BY THE THE SECOND WEEK OF NOVEMBER. THIS STORM
SYSTEM THEN HELPED PUSH AN ARCTIC COLD FRONT INTO THE UNITED STATES
WHICH BROUGHT SUBFREEZING TEMPERATURES TO EVERY STATE BY THE MIDDLE
OF THE MONTH. LOCALLY...TEMPERATURES PLUNGED TO RECORD LEVELS WITH
AVERAGE TEMPERATURES BETWEEN 10 AND 27 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL FOR 11
STRAIGHT DAYS BETWEEN THE 12TH AND 22ND. THE COLDEST DAY WAS THE
18TH WITH A HIGH OF ONLY 17 AND A LOW OF 9. THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE
ON THIS DAY WAS JUST 13...A WHOPPING 27 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL. THE
HIGH OF 17 ALSO SET A RECORD FOR THE COLDEST HIGH TEMPERATURE ON
THIS DATE...BREAKING THE OLD RECORD OF 24 SET IN 1903. THE LOW
TEMPERATURE OF 9 ALSO SET A RECORD...BREAKING THE OLD RECORD OF 10
SET IN 1959. IN ADDITION...THE LOW TEMPERATURE OF 9 ON THE 21ST ALSO
SET A NEW RECORD LOW...BREAKING THE OLD RECORD OF 11 IN 1964.

PRECIPITATION FOR NOVEMBER WAS 3.05 INCHES...JUST 0.04 INCHES BELOW
NORMAL. THIS RANKED AS ONLY THE 34TH WETTEST NOVEMBER ON RECORD.
ABOUT ONE HALF OF THIS PRECIPITATION OCCURRED ON JUST ONE
DAY...NOVEMBER 23RD WHEN 1.56 INCHES OF RAIN FELL. THIS WAS A DAILY
RECORD FOR THAT DATE. THE ENTIRE RAIN EVENT PRODUCED 2.20 INCHES
OVER THREE DAYS.

DESPITE PRECIPITATION BEING NEAR NORMAL...SNOWFALL WAS ABOVE NORMAL.
THERE WAS 4.2 INCHES OF SNOW RECORDED...2.4 INCHES ABOVE NORMAL.
THIS RANKED AS THE 25TH SNOWIEST NOVEMBER DATING BACK TO 1912. DECEMBER
1950 WAS THE SNOWIEST WITH 14.1 INCHES. WEATHER OBSERVERS REPORTED
3.4 INCHES ON THE 16TH...A SINGLE DAY SNOWFALL RECORD FOR THAT DATE.
THIS RANKED AS THE 12TH GREATEST SINGLE DAY SNOWFALL FOR
