Coldest start to November since 2003


It has been a chilly first half of November with the first 11 days coming in below average with a record tying low of 12 degrees the 9th.  That’s the first time a record low has been broken or tied since 2014.  The cold streak has led to the 10th coldest start to the month on record… those records dating back to 1872.  Some years of note include the coldest in 1991, which was post Halloween Blizzard.  1951 where record cold temps were seen for weeks from Minnesota to Atlanta in one of the coldest Novembers in U.S. history.  Finally, in 2003, we had a very similar overall pattern across North America that we have this year with a La Nina in place and several clippers systems dropping snowfall across the state, leading to the colder temperatures.  There are some signs of warming back above average briefly for part of this week, but more cold looks to be on the horizon into next weekend, and potentially the rest of the month.
