...NOVEMBER 2013 NARRATIVE FOR CENTRAL NEBRASKA REGIONAL AIRPORT...

FOR THE MOST PART...NOVEMBER 2013 WAS A FAIRLY UNREMARKABLE
MONTH...FEATURING ONLY SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL PRECIPITATION AND
TYPICAL...ALTERNATING STRETCHES OF ABOVE AND BELOW NORMAL
TEMPERATURES...BUT NOTHING ALL THAT EXTREME OR LONG-LASTING. IN
FACT...
FOR THE SECOND CONSECUTIVE MONTH THE MONTHLY TEMPERATURE
DEPARTURE-FROM-NORMAL MADE THE RARE DISTINCTION OF EXACTLY-MATCHING
THE 30-YEAR NORMAL TO THE NEAREST TENTH OF A DEGREE.
AS FOR DROUGHT
CONDITIONS...THE U.S DROUGHT MONITOR MAINTAINED CATEGORY D0
"ABNORMALLY DRY" ACROSS HALL COUNTY DURING THE MONTH.

TAKING A CLOSER LOOK AT PRECIPITATION...THE MONTHLY TOTAL OF 0.97

NOVEMBER NORMAL OF 1.17 INCHES. ALTHOUGH BELOW NORMAL...THIS WAS
ACTUALLY THE WETTEST NOVEMBER SINCE 2008. THE VAST MAJORITY OF
NOVEMBER RAIN (0.90 INCHES) FELL EARLY IN THE MONTH ON THE 5TH. THE
FIRST MEASURABLE SNOW OF THE SEASON ARRIVED ON THE 21ST WITH ONLY A
LIGHT DUSTING OF 0.2 INCHES. THIS MARKED THE EIGHTH CONSECUTIVE
NOVEMBER WITH NO MORE THAN ONE-HALF INCH OF SNOWFALL...SINCE 2.8
INCHES FELL IN 2005.

AS STATED EARLIER...TEMPERATURE-WISE IT ENDED UP BEING AN INCREDIBLY
"NORMAL" MONTH WITH ALTERNATING PERIODS OF MODESTLY ABOVE AND BELOW
NORMAL READINGS. OVERALL...THE MONTHLY MEAN TEMPERATURE RESULTING
FROM AVERAGING BOTH THE HIGHS AND LOWS WAS 38.1
DEGREES...EXACTLY-MATCHING THE 30-YEAR NORMAL. OF THE 30 DAYS DURING
THE MONTH...16 FEATURED AN ABOVE NORMAL MEAN TEMPERATURE AND 14 WERE
BELOW NORMAL. BREAKING DOWN THE MONTH INTO MORE DETAIL...THE
OVERALL-WARMEST WEEK WAS CENTERED FROM THE 14TH-20TH...DURING WHICH

WEEK CENTERED FROM THE 22ND-28TH. DURING THIS WEEK...FIVE DAYS
FAILED TO REACH 40 DEGREES...INCLUDING THE COLDEST MONTHLY HIGH OF
26 DEGREES ON THE 23RD AND THE COLDEST LOW OF 8 DEGREES ON THE 27TH.
THE THANKSGIVING DAY HIGH OF ONLY 35 DEGREES ON THE 28TH BROKE A
STREAK OF TWO THANKSGIVINGS IN A ROW THAT REACHED 60+ DEGREES. THE
MILDEST LOW TEMPERATURE OF THE MONTH WAS 40 DEGREES ON THE 3RD.

THE HIGHEST WIND GUST OF THE MONTH AT CENTRAL NEBRASKA REGIONAL
