The Warmest November Day in History for Each New England State
November is coming in hot. Literally.
After an up and down October that saw everything from beach days to a polar vortex watch, the rollercoaster ride continues. Just a week after picking apples and trick or treating, New Englanders are making beach plans a few weeks out from Thanksgiving.
What does this mean for the winter?
“When you have – certainly in Boston – a big snowstorm in Boston in October, the rest of the winter, more often than not, is a dud,” he continued.
But Rosenthal cautioned that skiers and snowboarders shouldn’t rush to buy new gear just yet.
He noted how that rule “went out the window” a few years ago, when the region experienced heavy snow in October and still went on to be blanketed in the winter. “When you have a lot of flips like we’ve been having (in October), there’s really no continuity."
“When you just have a few weeks of warmth early in November…that’s not a prelude to the rest of the winter.”
With temperatures expected to soar into the 70s the first weekend of November, I was curious if we’d have to put our turkeys in the oven, or just drop them on the sidewalk like an egg (and what came first – the turkey or the egg?). I was also curious about the warmest November day for each New England state.
There are some dates that appear to be part of a rare November heat wave that hit much of New England. But there are also a few stand-alones, one of which really stood out.
