Weatherwatch

November 2015

It was a November to remember due to a variety of strong weather systems, which resulted in Northwestern wind damage (November 17–18), Midwestern snow (November 20–21 and November 30–December 1), Southern flooding (starting on Thanksgiving Day), and a pair of late-season tornado outbreaks (November 11 and 16–18). Other highlights included a late-month cold snap in the West, a holiday ice storm on the southern High Plains, and drought eradication in the Pacific Northwest. Some other sections of the West did not fare as well; for example, parts of California received beneficial rain and snow, but not enough to start filling drought-depleted reservoirs or dent four-year precipitation deficits.
