NOAA: January through November 2019 is warmest on record for parts of Southeast

NOAA’s monthly climate summary for November 2019 came out today. It shows that November 2019 was in the middle third of years for temperature for the US as was autumn 2019. Precipitation for November was in the driest third of years but the autumn amount was in the upper third of years, and the January through November total was the wettest on record for the US. For the Southeast, large parts were the warmest on record for the year to date, but many parts were significantly drier than normal, no surprise when you recall the flash drought that occurred this summer and fall.
