AFTER A VERY WARM FEW MONTHS, A SHIFT IN THE WEATHER PATTERN FINALLY  
CAME IN THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER. THE FIRST WEEK OF THE MONTH REMAINED  
UNSEASONABLY WARM. THE HIGH TEMPERATURE OF 69 DEGREES ON NOVEMBER 3  
WAS THE WARMEST TEMPERATURE IN THE MONTH. THINGS BEGAN TO CHANGE  
WHEN A COLD FRONT ON THE 6TH BROUGHT COOLER AIR INTO THE AREA.  
ALTHOUGH TEMPERATURES DROPPED TO A FEW DEGREES BELOW NORMAL, IT WAS  
JUST A TASTE OF WHAT WAS TO COME. ANOTHER, STRONGER COLD FRONT  
BROUGHT MUCH COLDER AIR STRAIGHT OUT OF THE ARCTIC A FEW DAYS LATER,  
WITH THE TEMPERATURE DROPPING TO 18 DEGREES ON THE 11TH. ALTHOUGH  
THE BRUTAL COLD ONLY LASTED A FEW DAYS, A SERIES OF COLD FRONTS KEPT  
TEMPERATURES BELOW NORMAL FOR THE REST OF THE MONTH WITH ONLY A FEW  
BRIEF EXCEPTIONS. THE FIRST MEASURABLE SNOW OF THE SEASON WAS  
OBSERVED ON THE 13TH WHEN 1.2 INCHES FELL.  
 
THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE FOR THE MONTH WAS 36.7 DEGREES WHICH WAS 1.8  
DEGREES BELOW NORMAL AND THE FIRST BELOW NORMAL NOVEMBER SINCE 2014.  
THE COLDEST NOVEMBER ON RECORD WAS IN 1995 WHEN THE AVERAGE  
TEMPERATURE WAS ONLY 34.4 DEGREES. THE WARMEST WAS IN 2011 WHEN IT  
WAS 43.5 DEGREES.  
 
A TOTAL OF 2.38 INCHES OF PRECIPITATION FELL WHICH WAS 2.97 INCHES  
BELOW NORMAL. THE HEAVIEST PRECIPITATION FELL ON THE 6TH WHEN 0.53  
INCHES WAS MEASURED. THE DRIEST NOVEMBER WAS IN 2012 WHEN ONLY 1.31  
INCHES OF PRECIPITATION FELL. THE WETTEST WAS IN 2009 WHEN 7.90  
INCHES WAS RECORDED.  
 
A TOTAL OF 1.2 INCHES OF SNOW FELL WHICH WAS 1.8 INCHES BELOW  
NORMAL. ALL OF THIS SNOW FELL ON THE 13TH. THE SNOWIEST NOVEMBER ON  
RECORD WAS IN 1997 WHEN 23.9 INCHES FELL. THE LEAST SNOWY WAS IN  
2006 WHEN NO SNOW FELL. AN ADDITIONAL THREE YEARS ONLY RECORDED A  
TRACE OF SNOW IN NOVEMBER, MOST RECENTLY IN 2004.
