This November has been a tiny bit wetter but quite a bit warmer than usual according to State Climatologist Harry Hillaker. Hillaker says temperatures were over five degrees warmer than normal. November 2004 will be the 17th warmest in the 132 years officials had been keeping weather record. Hillaker says precipitation levels were very close to normal. However, 2004 will be an above-normal year for precipitation. Hillaker says as far as weather records go, September, October and November are considered fall. He says this fall has been drier than normal. The fall of 2004 was mild, according to Hillaker. Temps averaged about three-and-a-half degrees warmer than normal. “Otherwise, nothing terribly out of the ordinary regarding the fall weather,” Hillaker says.
