November 2007 Warmth

A record number of days in November with high temperatures 75°F or higher?

Through November 19th, there have been 9 days this month where the high temperature recorded at Dodge City was at or above 75°F.  Looking back at the record book for Dodge City, this feat has only occurred one other year (1999 with 10 days) in station history (which dates back to 1874).  On November 19th, a blistering 82 degrees was recorded at Dodge City, which tied a record high for the date, which was last set in 1942.  A very strong cold front will push through the Great Plains Tuesday, putting an abrupt end to the unseasonably and persistent warm weather.
