November Summary

 November was warm and very wet across southern Indiana and central Kentucky, with all major reporting stations experiencing Novembers among the top seven wettest on record.

The second half of the month was wetter than the first, and was ushered in with a powerful storm system on the 14th.  A squall line moved across much of southern Indiana and spawned an EF1 tornado that moved right across the courthouse square in Paoli.  More wet systems followed, culminating in a three-day long soaking as an area of low pressure got stuck over the southeastern United States from the 27th to the 29th and gave us 2 to 4 inches of rain.  Minor flooding resulted on several area rivers.
