NOVEMBER BEGAN WITH A TYPICAL FALL-LIKE WEATHER PATTERN FEATURING A
FEW DAYS OF ABOVE NORMAL WEATHER FOLLOWED BY A COLD FRONT AND COOLER
TEMPERATURES. THIS CONTINUED UNTIL THE MIDDLE OF THE MONTH WHEN WARM
WEATHER BEGAN TO DOMINATE. ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES LASTED FROM THE
13TH THROUGH THE 20TH. A STORM SYSTEM BROUGHT 1.4 INCHES OF RAIN ON
THE 15TH AND 16TH, BUT THE WARMTH CONTINUED. IT WAS NOT UNTIL THE
20TH THAT THINGS BEGAN TO CHANGE. THE FIRST ACCUMULATING SNOW OF THE
SEASON CAME ON THE 20TH INTO THE 21ST WHEN MORE THAN 1 INCH OF SNOW
WAS MEASURED. THIS SIGNALED THE ARRIVAL OF COLDER AIR WHICH LASTED
FOR MUCH OF THE REST OF THE MONTH. ANOTHER STORM SYSTEM BROUGHT 1.4
INCHES OF RAIN ON THE 29TH AND 30TH, HELPING TO PREVENT THE
PERSISTENT DROUGHT FROM INTENSIFYING.

THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE FOR THE MONTH WAS 40.2 DEGREES WHICH WAS 1.7
DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. THE WARMEST NOVEMBER ON RECORD WAS IN 2011
WHEN THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE WAS 43.5 DEGREES. THE COLDEST WAS 34.4
DEGREES IN 1995.

A TOTAL OF 4.32 INCHES OF PRECIPITATION FELL WHICH WAS 1.03 INCHES
BELOW NORMAL. THE DRIEST NOVEMBER WAS IN 2012 WHEN ONLY 1.31 INCHES
WAS MEASURED. THE WETTEST WAS IN 2009 WITH 7.90 INCHES.

SNOWFALL AMOUNTED TO A TOTAL OF 1.3 INCHES WHICH WAS 1.7 INCHES
BELOW NORMAL. MOST OF THIS SNOW FELL ON THE 20TH INTO THE 21ST. THE
SNOWIEST NOVEMBER WAS IN 1997 WHEN 23.9 INCHES FELL. THERE WAS NO
SNOW IN NOVEMBER 2006. THREE ADDITIONAL YEARS ONLY OBSERVED A TRACE
OF SNOW IN NOVEMBER, MOST RECENTLY IN 2004.
