PA Blurb - November 2014

November was punctuated (and defined) by an anomalously frigid air mass just after mid-month that set a handful of record minima from Erie to Philadelphia. The extreme chill lead to bands of heavy snow from Lake Erie that grazed the northwest corner of the state. As the cold air sloshed away from the state, milder air produced bands of freezing rain on the 22nd leading to a rash of accidents. All of the state experienced snowfall on the day before Thanksgiving, about ten days earlier than normal in the southeast quarter of the Commonwealth. While temperatures averaged below normal across the state, it was only the northwest (climate division 10) that notched its coldest November since 1996. Most of the rest of the state had remarkably similar departures to last year (2013). Precipitation was below average in all but a handful of southeast counties. The driest patches were inland from Lake Erie, the east slopes of the Laurel Highlands and the south side of Poconos. There were no severe weather reports this month and the growing season ended across the entire Commonwealth by November 18th.
