November Weather Summary

The dry weather continues this month.  After an extremely arid 0.54" total for October, we ended up with a slightly better 1.74" for the month of November.  The dry months stick out to us lately, since we haven't really experienced any prolonged stretches of dry weather patterns in the past three years.  I did a quick data check.  Over the past 36 months, 27 of them have exceeded the normal precip amounts, and only 9 have had deficits.  The months with deficits, ranging from 1/2008 - 11/2010 are:

We did see our first flakes of the year on the 30th.  Some midday flurries and light snow just blew around, but made for a welcomed sight for me.  It's hard for me to imagine, but our average snowfall for November is 1.6"

WxWatcher, Novembers up here have been dry during recent times as well. Looks like we all will be getting some snow very soon. Together we are still waiting for our first inches of snowfall...
