November is typically one of our driest months and we'll largely stay dry through the short term.
One computer model brings very warm and dry air. Another brings above-average moisture in place. The Climate Prediction Center puts KELOLAND on the edge of better moisture, a big change from last November.
Last year, Sioux Falls only picked up four-hundredths of an inch of a snowy mix. Aberdeen got even less. Pierre managed almost ten inches of snow and was our closest thing to a normal month. Central and northern South Dakota typically get five or more inches of snow in November.
October saw below normal for temperatures in Sioux Falls and Huron, but the long-term outlook keeps some lingering warmth through Thanksgiving.
Sioux Falls takes a big hit on high temperature this month. Highs should average 43 degrees in November compared to 60 in October.
KELOLAND loses over an hour of sunshine this month causing temperatures to nosedive overnight. With the shorter days comes an end to Daylight Savings Time. Don't forget to turn your clocks back.
