November 2013 was colder than normal across most of the state. Meanwhile, precipitation was generally above normal in the northwest, below normal in the southwest and northeast, and near to above normal acros the east central plains. 

The first significant storm delivered rain and snow to central and northern New Mexico on the 4th into the 5th. Significant snow accumulations were noted over the higher peaks of the northern mountains. Relatively quiet weather followed through the 10th. A strong cold front arrived on the 11th across the eastern plains. A decent storm on the 15th and 16th dropped rain over much of the state and snow in the northern mountains. A strong cold front on the 21st and 22nd combined with a slow moving, potent storm to bring widespread rain, ice and snow to the Land of Enchantment from the 21st through 25th! The rest of the month was much quieter, including a tranquil Thanksgiving. Cold temperatures gradually returned to normal by the end of the month with little or no additional precipitation.
