The Spring and Fall seasons are often referred to as ‘transition’ seasons because it is a transition between the Summer and Winter months. It’s often during those transition months we can tend to get the most extreme weather, such as large temperature swings and very strong storm systems.
The month of November can often see such extremes as we begin to transition closer and closer to the Winter season. The average high temperature during the month drops 17 degrees from beginning to end, the highest temperature drop during the Fall season. Average highs at the beginning of the month are typically in the mid-50s, but then fall into the upper 30s by the end of the month. Rainfall tends to decrease during the colder months with just a little over two and a half inches of precipitation occurring. Average snowfall begins to climb, with November’s average around 1.7 inches – although we know the snow can definitely add up to more than that during this month. December is, on average, our snowiest month out of the Winter season with 11.3 inches falling.
Unfortunately temperatures this week will feel more like the middle to end of the month with highs only expected to reach the low to mid 40s early in the week, but then the 30s by the end of the week.
