NOAA Tracking Our Devolving Climate & Weather

Assessing the U.S. Climate in November 2019,
NOAA, December 9, 2019.

MAIN POINTS

Below Average November Temperatures
"...contiguous U.S. average temperature was 41.2°F, 0.5°F below the 20th century average, ranking in the middle third of the November record."

Warm West
"Above- to much-above-average November temperatures were observed from the West Coast to the Rockies and across parts of southern Florida."

Cold East
"Below- to much-below-average temperatures were present from the central U.S. to the East Coast. Average temperatures across Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Vermont ranked among the coldest ten percent of Novembers on record."

Baking Alaska
"The Alaska average November temperature was 19.9°F, 8.2°F above the long-term mean, ranking fourth warmest in the 95-year period of record for the state. Record warm conditions were observed across the Northwest Gulf and South Panhandle regions. Anchorage, Kodiak, Homer, and Cold Bay experienced their warmest November on record, while Utqiaġvik (Barrow) and King Salmon experienced their second warmest such month. Much of the state had monthly average temperatures well-above average for the month."

Average YTD Temperatures
"For the year to date, the contiguous U.S. temperature was 54.2°F, 0.4°F above the 20th century average. This ranked in the middle third of the January–November record."

Hot Southeast-East Coast YTD
"The year-to-date average temperature for both Florida and Georgia ranked as the warmest such period on record while North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia ranked second warmest. Six additional Southeast to Mid-Atlantic states had year-to-date temperatures in the top ten warmest category."

Cold Year on the High Plains
"Below- to much-below-average temperatures were observed across the northern and central Plains and Upper Midwest. South Dakota ranked ninth coldest for this year-to-date period."

Wettest YTD on Record
"...the wettest January–November on record."

YTD
"...4.55 inches above the long-term average..."

Full Year Precipitation Record, Too…
"...the 12-month period December 2018–November 2019 was 35.39 inches, 5.45 inches above average, exceeding the previous December–November record set in 1982-83 by 0.31 inch."

Extremes of Wet & Dry
SW Deluges
"Arizona ranked third wettest for November, while New Mexico ranked fifth wettest."

High Plains Floating
"North Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin each had their wettest autumn on record with Michigan experiencing its second wettest such season on record. South Dakota, Iowa, and Arizona also ranked in the top ten wettest category."

Wet and Dry Extremes
"St. George, UT, had a record 155-day streak with no measurable precipitation beginning in mid-June 2019. On November 20, St. George received 1.29 inches of rainfall, making November 2019 the wettest such month on record."

Nonetheless
Drier than Average November
"The November precipitation total for the contiguous U.S. was 1.86 inches, 0.37 inch below average, ranking in the driest third of the 125-year period of record."

Alaskan Exception
"In Alaska, it was the wettest November since 2005 at Ketchikan with 21.27 inches of precipitation reported. Much of the North Slope received record amounts of precipitation during the month. The Panhandle region received above-average precipitation over the last couple of months, which helped to alleviate some of the long-term severe drought conditions across the region."

YTD Record Alaskan Warmth
"Year-to-date temperatures ranked record warm across Alaska, eclipsing the warmth of 2016 by a narrow margin.
