Recapping November 2011
Rainfall for the month ended up at 3.87" -- just shy of an inch above normal for Philadelphia for November. While not wet on the whole, the last two weeks of the month provided the lion's share of the rains for the month between three soggy storms that brought at least a half inch of rain in each of them, with the middle storm bringing over two inches of rain to the Delaware Valley. The combination of rain between September, October, and November buoyed Philadelphia to the second wettest meteorological autumn on record, trailing just 1999 (which had a slightly more wet September going for it) in all-time rains.
