And what do we expect?
Arleen is the expert, and this is what she expects…
November will see less than average precipitation with warmer temperatures. The first half of the month will be dry outside of a short lived system the 2nd week of the month. The second half of the month will be much more active with a number of systems slipping through our area looking more like an El Nino winter. Unfortunately, it will be a too little, too late to make for an average month. We should start to see a transition to more wintry weather just in time for Thanksgiving.
