PAST CLIMATE MAPS
Precipitation prospects continued to show signs of life last month across much of the state. Our region of the state is somewhat behind the rest of the state, but we did receive a beneficial rain the first week of October. Over two inches fell in some parts of the state. The rest of the month cooperated weather-wise, as far as field work and harvesting with shower activity being limited. I think we'll continue our prospects for increase precipitation activity this month with above normal totals.
Temperature-wise last month, the first half of the month ran well above normal, with the second half well below normal. In the end, the month finished within a few tenths of a degree near normal. Our trends for Novembers have been warmer than normal and I think we'll continue this trend. Look for temperatures to finish warmer than normal this month.
Fair skies are favored to open the month on Friday, November 1.
Partly cloudy skies with a scattered shower are expected over the weekend of November 2-3.
Sunny skies are favored from Monday to Wednesday, November 4-6. Temperatures should warm to above average.
Clouds are expected to be on the increase from Thursday to Saturday, November 7-9, bringing the possibility of passing showers.
Sunny skies and cooler temperatures are favored from Sunday to Wednesday, November 10-13.
Partly to mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers are expected on Thursday or Friday, November 14-15. Precipitation totals should be light.
Cloudy skies with rain are favored from Saturday to Monday, November 16-18. Light to moderate precipitation totals are possible. I wouldn't be surprised to see some snow during this period.
Partly cloudy skies are expected from Tuesday to Thursday, November 19-21. Temperatures should slowly warm.
A more active weather pattern is favored from Friday to Tuesday, November 22-26. Cloudy skies with passing showers are likely. I think most of the precipitation will be in the form of rain.
Sunny skies are favored as we enter the Thanksgiving holiday on Wednesday, November 27, and are expected throughout the holiday weekend, Saturday and Sunday, November 30 and December 1.
