Welcome to November!

We turned the calendar to November.  And even though it will be quite mild the next few days, on average temperatures will continue to cool through the month. We’ll also lose another hour of daylight. 

We’re coming off of a wet October, with more than 6″ of rain at TF Green Airport, it was the 12th wettest October on record. 

It looks like early November is following suit, with potentially 2 heavy rain events in the first week of the month. 

In addition to more rain, it’s not that unusual to get our first snowfall of the season this month.  While the average first snow (0.1″ or more) is on December 2, we’ve seen snow in November roughly 40% of the years on record at TF Green.

NOAA’s outlook for the month calls for a warmer and wetter than normal November in the northeast.

The shorter days and longer nights are another hallmark of the month.  We’ll lose nearly an hour of daylight between November 1 and November 30.  And don’t forget about the time change this weekend.  Daylight Saving Time comes to an end Saturday night.  Set your clocks back one hour before going to bed, and enjoy that extra hour of sleep!

The days will keep getting shorter through December 21–the Winter Solstice.  On the “First Day of Winter”, we’re left with just a little over 9 hours of daylight.
