Cold November

As we end November, we end another cold month.  When the month started, it appeared that the first half would be colder than average and the second half would be warmer than average.  Although the second half was warmer per average than the first half, it still was nowhere near warm enough to offset the first half of the month.  In fact, the week from November 6 through the 13th was the third coldest such period on record for most locations.  In turn, the eastern part of North Dakota into northwestern Minnesota will finish the month 5 to 10 degrees below average and western North Dakota 2 to 5 degrees below average.  A cold month indeed.
