Image
November 2009 finishes at number 4 for all-time warmest Novembers (records date back to 1893). Holding strong all month coming in with a mean temperature of 42.8° (follow this link for more on this statistic). It also becomes the fourth consecutive November which OSNW3 has measured below average precipitation (Annual Precipitation). As far as snow, no measurable snow fell all month (Days with Snow). As this November comes to a close, it is now 262 consecutive days the temperature has reached a daily maximum above 32° (2007[228], 2008[246]). However, with some Winter like temperatures forecast to move in the next couple of days then to stick around for a week or two, things will begin to feel and look more like "normal".

Most people are not expecting a cold and snowy winter as the past two have been such.

November of 2009 has come in like a lion. Pleasant weather with above average temps and sunny skies. The sites and sounds of yard clean-up are all around. The weather pleasantries are forecast to continue into the week as well. This puts a strain on some of the predictions for this upcoming Winter at OSNW3.

I am unsure of the possibilities, but one thing is certain, our first freezes are easily noticeable and I think that is pretty cool.
