Weather forecasters have a saying that says, “What happens in November, the winter remembers.” Well, let’s hope the 2013-14 winter has a short memory. That’s because November 2013 in South Jersey was memorable but for all the wrong reasons, according to the monthly climate report issued by the National Weather Service Mount Holly Forecast Center.

November was way cold

You were right if said you felt as though daily high temperatures this November seemed more like December. According to the National Weather Service, the 24-hour temperature in South Jersey in November 2013 averaged 43.4 degrees. That’s 3.4 degrees colder than normal according to official South Jersey climate records taken at the Atlantic City International Airport in Egg Harbor Township.

The high for the month was 70 degrees on Nov. 2 and the coldest temperature was 19 degrees set on Nov. 25.

November 2013 was dry

Though the Thanksgiving Week nor’easter dropped 1.77 inches of rain on Nov. 26-27, the month as a whole had less rain than normal, according to National Weather Service figures.

Only 2.55 inches of rain fell during the month and nearly three-quarters of an inch less than normal for November in South Jersey.

November 2013’s peak wind gust came on Nov. 24 when a gust of 47 mph was recorded at the Atlantic City International Airport.
