B is for below normal. Despite above-normal precipitation in some areas (and colder-than-normal temperatures), November 1-15 snowfall was below to near normal for much of the Northeast. The largest deficits of more than 3 inches were found east of Lakes Erie and Ontario, as well as higher elevations of northern New England. Of the 31 sites that normally see measurable snowfall (0.1 inches) during the first two weeks of November, only six did.
