NYC Monthly Summary: November 2012

November was unusually chilly in New York City this year.  In fact, we had 24 out of 30 days with below normal temperatures.  This extended stretch of cool weather helped lower the city’s average monthly temperature to 43.9°F, which is 4.2°F below normal.  

In terms of rainfall this November, NYC collected a meager 1.81 inches. That is 2.21 inches below average.  More significant precipitation, however, came in the form of snow.  A nor’easter blustered its way through the city on November 7th and brought the Big Apple its first snowfall of the season – 4.7 inches in Central Park. This accumulation not only set a new daily snowfall record, but also made November 2012 the 6th snowiest November on record.
