State Climatologist Harry Hillaker says with four days left in November it’s already clear that one thing this month was as plentiful as the turkey and trimmings expected to fill tables tomorrow. He says it’s been a wet month across two-thirds of the state, with an average rainfall of three-and-a-half inches. He says that will rank it as the 11th wettest November on record. Hillaker says most of the state had a bounty of rain, while others were left still wanting. The are southwest, central and northeast Iowa areas had two to threes times the normal rainfall. He says the one exception was northwest Iowa, which still remained dry. He says it should go a long way toward replenishing subsoil moisture, and should help get rivers and streams back to normal flows. While the 11th month has been wet — the temperatures have been simply average. He says most of the state will likely end up being plus or minus one degree from normal. He says we had our first sub-zero temperatures Monday, but we’ve also had some mild weather. Hillaker says most of the state has yet to see any measurable snowfall thus far this month.
