Fall La La La La
After a few warm months in a row, November turned cooler.
November was a frosty month for the Northeast, with temperatures running 6 degrees or more below normal in some areas. Sixteen of the 35 airport climate sites ranked this November among their top 20 coldest. For fall, however, many areas averaged out to be near normal or warmer than normal. Twenty-three airport climate sites were within 1 degree of normal and another 8 sites were more than 1 degree above normal.
The fall season ended on the dry side of normal for most areas.
November was drier than normal for the majority of the Northeast. Departures mostly ranged from 50 to 90 percent of normal precipitation, except some coastal areas that saw up to 200 percent of normal. Fall was also drier than normal for much of the region, with departures generally between 50 to 100 percent of normal. In November it was beginning to look a lot like winter as 23 of the 35 airport climate sites were snowier than normal. Eighteen sites ranked this November among their top 20 snowiest.
