IT WAS A RELATIVELY QUIET BUT WARM NOVEMBER WITH NEAR NORMAL
PRECIPITATION IN THE SOUTH BEND AREA. THE SEASONS FIRST SNOWFALL
OCCURRED MID MONTH BUT MEASURABLE SNOW WAS RECORDED ON JUST ONE DAY
AND MONTHLY SNOWFALL WAS BELOW NORMAL. THE AREA ALSO EXPERIENCED ONE
DAY OF SEVERE WEATHER ON THE 18TH WITH TREES AND POWER LINES BEING
KNOCKED DOWN ACROSS THE REGION.

TEMPERATURES REACHED 70 DEGREES OR WARMER ON 4 DAYS AND 60 DEGREES
OR WARMER ON 11 DAYS...ALL COMING BEFORE THE 19TH. A STRONG COLD
FRONT PUSHED THROUGH THE REGION LATE ON THE 18TH AND GENERATED
STRONG TO SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS AND LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL. THE FIRST
GOOD SHOT OF COLD AIR FOLLOWED WITH LIGHT SNOW...PRIMARILY LAKE
EFFECT...OCCURRING ON THE 19TH. THIS COLD AIR WAS SHORT LIVED AND
TEMPERATURES WERE GENERALLY NEAR NORMAL TO SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL FOR
THE REMAINDER OF THE MONTH.

THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE FOR THE MONTH WAS 45.8 DEGREES...5.1 DEGREES
ABOVE NORMAL. THIS RANKED AS THE 9TH WARMEST NOVEMBER ON RECORD.
THIS WAS ALSO THE WARMEST NOVEMBER SINCE 2001 WHICH WAS THE SECOND
WARMEST NOVEMBER ON RECORD. HOWEVER...NOVEMBER 2015 WAS THE 13TH
WARMEST NOVEMBER ON RECORD WITH AN AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OF 44.5.

A TOTAL OF 2.38 INCHES OF PRECIPITATION WAS MEASURED...THIS WAS 0.29
INCHES BELOW NORMAL. THIS RANKED AS THE 73RD DRIEST NOVEMBER. THERE
WERE JUST 8 DAYS IN THE MONTH WITH MEASURABLE PRECIPITATION AND 3 OF
THESE DAYS HAD MORE THAN A HALF INCH. THE GREATEST 24HR
PRECIPITATION WAS 0.88 INCHES ON THE 23RD.

THE FIRST OFFICIAL MEASURABLE SNOWFALL OCCURRED ON NOVEMBER 19TH
WITH A HALF INCH BEING MEASURED. THIS WAS THE ONLY DAY WITH
MEASURABLE SNOW AND LEFT THE MONTHLY TOTAL 4.3 INCHES BELOW NORMAL.
THIS RANKED AS THE 13TH LEAST SNOWIEST NOVEMBER ON RECORD.

UNFORTUNATELY A PROLONGED SYSTEM OUTAGE PREVENTED THE AUTOMATED
SURFACE OBSERVING SYSTEM FROM RECORDING AND TRANSMITTING WEATHER
OBSERVATIONS FROM THE 16TH THROUGH THE 28TH AT SOUTH BEND.
TEMPERATURE DATA DURING THIS PERIOD WAS TAKEN FROM A NEARBY
COOPERATIVE WEATHER OBSERVATION LOCATION IN NILES MICHIGAN.
PRECIPITATION AND SNOWFALL DATA WAS USED FROM THE SNOW PAID
OBSERVERS IN SOUTH BEND.
