November outlook

November 4th, 2015: Isn’t this a great start to the month?! We nearly set a record on the 1st (missed getting to the 80’s by 3 degrees!), and have followed that day up with several days in the 60’s in a row (roughly 9 degrees above average each day).

Overall, this fits with the going forecast from the Climate Prediction Center for the month as a whole.

According to their outlook, we should see plenty of days like this: not always in the 60’s, but above average and warm for this time of year. This doesn’t rule out any cold days by any means; it just means we’ll be at least a little warmer than usual over the course of the month.

As for rain (and snow), the CPC isn’t showing much more than average amounts for us around here. We avoid the very wet or very dry patterns that set up in other spots of the country.

So, what is average for November? Check out the graphic below for our “usual” weather this month:

An interesting side effect to all of this warmth is the lack of freezing temperatures.

We haven’t had a night below freezing yet in Rockford this fall, and we will set the record for the latest first freeze in our area. In fact, it might be another week before we get close to freezing, at this point!
