Galeton November weather report

I must, once again, say we had yet another very nice Fall month, Thus far, we have had a very nice weather year, However, we are well below normal rainfall.
Here is just an update regarding the weather here in Galeton over the past several years. In 1953 we recorded 36" of snow on November 4-5, then in 1950 we had a Thanksgiving blizzard with heavy rain, then snow and very cold conditions. The weekend after Thanksgiving Route 6 was closed for a day or two with the heavy snow and then sub zero temps the snow was difficult to plow and in 1950 we did not have the heavy snow removal equipment that we have today. I do remember heavy snow on Thanksgiving day several times and then I recall a warm Thanksgiving day or two.

This year the month started out beautifully with warm sunny days. It stayed that way until the 18th. The mornings were generally in the mid 20s warming up to the mid 50's and even hitting 60 on occasion. A cold front roared through on the 20th and 21st. We had two days of strong sustained winds. Many trees came down, however the lights stayed on, thankfully. I will comment the power stayed on in Galeton, however there were some power outages outside of town. It was much colder with 19 degrees on the morning of the 22nd. For the remainder of the month it remained mild and a bit cooler.

The cold front produced some heavy lake effect snowfall to the north and east of town. Some locations in New York state received 2 to 3' of snow and a few locations near Lake Ontario received even more.

For November we received 0.87" of rainfall and melted snow. This is the lowest reading I can find for the past 50 years. We are substantially below the monthly total and also for the year. This is now reflected in Pine Creek. It is lower than it should be for this time of year. We received one inch of snow on the 20th. Last year we recorded 3.51" of rain and a trace of snow.

The average high for November is 45 degrees and the low is 27 degrees.

We recorded 8 foggy mornings and actually had 13 days with measurable rainfall.
