We’re flipping the page to November and by the looks of the forecast, it will feel more like winter than it should.
The warm days of October will not spill over into November. Much colder air will soon pour into the upper plains with highs retreating to the 40s for the weekend. It’s a pattern that I think we’ll have to get used to over the next couple of weeks as hits reinforcing cold air from the north will be common. Keep in mind, we start November with average highs in the upper 40s to lower 50s and end the month with average highs falling almost 15 to 20 degrees to the low to middle 30s.
This month is also the month when more and more people think about snow, and for good reason as we’ve seen snow amounts during the month get as highs as 20 to 30 inches or more, but we’ve also had those years when we didn’t see any at all.
Around average, many places receive around five to eight inches of snow this month. I think our best chance to getting these numbers will happen during the first week and a half of the month and toward the end of the month. The best chance for above average snow will be in north central KELOLAND.
While we’ll start colder than average, I think we’ll slowly pull out of it around Thanksgiving week, but more cold air may pour in after that. Remember, we’re still in fall as winter doesn’t start until December.
