A look back at November for central Ohio

November was a record-breaking month for below average temperatures with above average snowfall yet below average precipitation.

November was another month that many of us will certainly remember. We saw 1.48" of precipitation(-1.72" below average and #28 driest November on record). Despite seeing below average precipitation, we ended up with 2.8" of snow, which is above our usual 0.9" we get for the month. The bulk of that snow fell on November 11th(2.1) with 0.7" falling the following day. Also, that started the extremely cold stretch with 2 days of highs in the 20's.

After the unseasonably cold start, we started to trend average to above average at the end of the month. The late month warm-up didn't help much, because we ended up with an average temperature of 38.8 degrees, which is the #15 coldest November on record.
