November turned out to give us a fast start to winter with temperatures a significant -3.5 degrees Fahrenheit below normal and with 6.3″ of snow above normal. This was our snowiest November since 1995 and our 8th snowiest November, ever!
Starting Monday, temperatures will begin to moderate, before reaching all-out winter, balmy weather late this week, but Cold will begin to return over the weekend as cold entrenched in the Great Plains will edge eastward, and bring temperatures that sink well below normal. I am watching for the possibility of a small snow event next weekend, followed by a larger event early the following week. Temperatures should moderate again near mid-month, before the cold digs in, again, hopefully in time to bring snow and cold for the holidays.
