November 2009 - Fourth Warmest All-Time

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".
