    PHL finished NOV at 43.7 degrees which is 3.9 degrees below average. As Tony pointed out over in the long range this is the coldest NOV since 1996. Over the Philadelphia 145 yr. temp period of record it's the 21st coldest. For the 25 coldest NOV's the subsequent DEC averages 34.2 degrees, a solid 2.4 degrees below the period of record average for the month. Interesting note when looking forward to the new 1991-2020 climate normal, based on pure averages at this point NOV has warmed the least of any month.

    for the 12 month period from AUG 1998 - July 1999 PHL rec'd 24.51" of precip, I don't remember the ground being as parched as it was before the mid AUG 99 rains came I don't think we've had a real drought since 2002

    They were worse during the Memorial Day weekend monsoon, the one down at the end of Cardinal actually overflowed on to Heacock Rd. Tonight was certainly no slouch 2.61" in the bucket, have to think the Delaware at least gets close to flood stage.
