PA Blurb - November 2015

The state of Pennsylvania, like much of the eastern two-thirds of the CONUS, was abnormally warm during the month of November. Monthly average temperatures were as high as 4-7 degrees F above normal values. Upper-level ridging dominated the weather over the region for the vast majority of the month. Not only did this lead to above normal temperatures but also a lack of precipitation across the state. Most reporting sites saw just 50-75 percent of their normal precipitation, with parts of south-central Pennsylvania not even measuring an inch of rain by the close of November. The only snow that fell across the state was confined to the northwest as a result of lake-enhanced snows as disturbances exited the region. The highest monthly snowfall total was observed in Chandlers Valley, in northwestern PA, where 3.0” fell through the end of the month.
