NYC Monthly Summary: November 2013

New York City was on a temperature roller-coaster this November.  We had highs that ranged from a warm 70°F to a brisk 30°F.  The chilly weather won in the end, though.  The city’s average monthly temperature was 45.3°F, which is 2.8°F below normal.

On the precipitation side of things, the city saw its first trace of snow for the season, but remained mostly dry.  While we received 3.15 inches of rain in Central Park, most of it fell during a nor’easter just before Thanksgiving.  Despite this late soaking, the city was still 0.87 inches below normal.  November is now the fifth consecutive month that NYC received below average rainfall.
