November 2010: Another Dry Month for Texoma

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:

  

City-by-City Rainfall and Comparison to Normal, Nov. 2010
Location Nov 2010 Rainfall Percentage of Normal
Ada 1.11 44%
Antlers 1.83 49%
Atoka 1.61 55%
Ardmore 1.81 79%
Bonham  3.23 83%
Durant 2.62 89%
Gainesville 0.37 16%
Hugo 2.83 76%
Madill 1.24 47%
Marietta 1.38 60%
Paris 3.90 97%
Sherman-Denison 1.32 35%
Sulphur-Davis 3.16 137% **
Tishomingo 1.59 61%

**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.

    Science says these warm temps will become the norm. Climate change. Its still hard to get over grasshoppers, flies, and butterflies still active. I still have rose moss and hibiscus blooming!
