Weather Rewind, November 13-19, 2011
Rainfall was confined to Wednesday in Philadelphia and points west -- picking up 0.74" in two rounds of rain through the day that pushed our rainfall total to a modern era (since 1872) record for rains in a calendar year. Some lingering showers (mixed with sleet and snow) fell on Thursday in New Jersey but the majority of that precipitation fell to the city's east, with just trace amounts registered at the Airport on Thursday.
Nationally, warmth was the story as temperatures for a vast chunk of real estate were above average to significantly above average. The story will ultimately remain the same again this week (above average temperatures for most everyone outside of the Pacific Northwest). Cold continues to be confined to Alaska -- and now also Western and Central Canada.
