Cloudy Novembers

November and December both average 18 days with the sky being cloudy.  Because November is one day shorter, it technically by percent is the cloudiest month of the year.  The other days that are not cloudy, tend to be a mix of clouds with the sun as a truly sunny day this time of year tends to be uncommon.  To take Fargo as an example the long term average is for only 5 or 6 sunny days in November and about the same for December.  Oddly, in Fargo there has already been that many sunny days this month with 11 days to go.  So yes, there has been a lot of cloudiness this month, there usually is, but at least we have fared better than most Novembers.
