Climate Summaries for November 2013

November of 2013 will go down in the record books as an unseasonably dry month, which helped to revive drought conditions across the upper Midwest.  Precipitation amounts ranged from less than a tenth of an inch across west central Minnesota to 1.50 inches across west central Wisconsin, which was as much as 1.2 inches below normal for the month.

The cooler than normal period which began in mid-October, continued for much of November. Average monthly temperatures ranged between 0.5 to 2.5 degrees below normal.  There were only a handful of days, mainly during the middle of the month, that high temperatures rose above normal.
