REMARKS...

COLD WEATHER DOMINATED NOVEMBER. TEMPERATURES WARMED WELL ABOVE
NORMAL INTO THE MID 70S ON THE AFTERNOON OF NOVEMBER 10...BUT A VERY
STRONG COLD FRONT SURGED THROUGH IN THE LATE AFTERNOON. TEMPERATURES
DROPPED 25 DEGREES IN TWO HOURS JUST BEHIND THE FRONT AND TRACE
AMOUNTS OF SNOW FELL AFTER MIDNIGHT. THE COLD AIR WAS QUITE
PERSISTENT FOR THE FOLLOWING SEVERAL DAYS WITH HIGHS ONLY IN THE 20S
AND 30S THROUGH NOVEMBER 17. AVERAGE TEMPERATURES FOR THE PERIOD
FROM NOVEMBER 11 THROUGH NOVEMBER 17 WERE THE TENTH COLDEST OF
ANY SEVEN DAY SPAN IN NOVEMBER ON RECORD...WHILE THE FIRST THREE
WEEKS OF THE MONTH WERE THE SECOND COLDEST ON RECORD. JUST BEFORE
TEMPERATURES MODERATED...THE MERCURY FELL TO SEVEN DEGREES ABOVE
ZERO ON THE MORNING OF NOVEMBER 8...TYING THE RECORD LOW FOR THAT
DAY. THIS WAS THE COLDEST TEMPERATURE MEASURED IN NOVEMBER SINCE
NOVEMBER 8...1991. THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE FOR THE MONTH WAS THE
14TH COLDEST FOR ANY NOVEMBER ON RECORD.
