November has been a mild month with the average daily temperature 3.6 degrees above the long-term average. This places November 2010 in the top 20 warmest but nowhere near the record.
It has also been a dry month with most areas seeing less than half of the long-term average. The 30-year average rainfall for November ranges from almost 4” from Sherman to Antlers to just 2” around Healdton.
Here are the numbers by city and percentage of normal rainfall:
|Location||Nov 2010 Rainfall||Percentage of Normal|
**Highest compared to normal.
Drier and milder than normal conditions can be expected to persist as we enter the first few weeks of winter. I speak of the average only; a snow or ice event could happen, but forecasting it more than a few days out is more luck than science.
