November 2011 was near to above normal regarding temperatures. Precipitation was below to well below normal except above normal in far Northwest, Southwest and Northeast New Mexico.

A strong cold front ended the mild start to November as it crossed New Mexico on the 2nd. Strong winds and a little snow impacted the northeast. The next storm brought more widespread winds as well as some snow to the northwest portions of the state on the 5th. Another storm quickly followed on the 7th and 8th with more widespread snow over northern New Mexico and more rain showers to central sections of the state. After a brief break on the 9th through 11th, strong winds returned on the 12th followed by some snow on the 13th over the northwest and north central areas. A more extended period of quiet weather returned for the 14th through 18th. Strong winds blew through the state early on the 19th as a disturbance passed well to the north. A weakening disturbance crossed on the 21st with isolated to scattered rain and snow showers. Mostly quiet and mild weather followed until the next storm system moved across the state on the 25th. This system brought rain and high mountain snow to the southern portions of New Mexico. The remainder of the month was dry while a potent storm began to take shape over the Great Basin on the 30th.
