Historic November Heat Wave

The recent stretch of warmth is one for the history books.

Posted: Nov 10, 2020 9:41 PM

It's pretty rare to see a day in the 70s in November. To see an entire week of 70s is historic! Here's a recap of the high temperatures and records that have fallen

11/5 - 71
11/6 - 70
11/7 - 71
11/8 - 70
11/9 - 75 (Previous record 74 in 1938)
11/10 - 78 (Previous record 74 in 1931)

The odds of getting to 70 in November are about once per three years based on the last 30 years of data. To get six days is something that's worthy of adding to the history books. The last similar stretch of historic warmth we've seen happened in March of 2012, where we ended up setting the earliest 80 degree temperature reading of the season.

Going forward, the weather will certainly change. A cold front arrives on Wednesday, bringing widespread rain showers to the region. Temperatures are likely to climb into the upper 60s. The cooler weather arrives on Thursday, with sunshine and highs returning to the 50s.
