Climo Notes

November is now running slightly above average, as the warmth of late last week completely erased the negative departures accumulated at the beginning of the month. I think we will see enough cold air in the 2nd half of the month to put us in the negative column for the 3rd month in a row. If this happens, it would be the 1st series of 3 consecutive below average months since the summer of 2004, and the 1st consecutive set of below average autumn months since 1976.
