In the mid-20s attm, but wow did we spike to a balmy 41F under rare sunshine this pm. And yes, 7 hrs above freezing did some snow cover damage as you can imagine with the ground having been warm when the snow fell. Nonetheless, the last evening/night looking like #winter here for a while I suppose. Been a fun ride November, sorry to say farewell

A November to Remember for many of us in the heartland, esp when you look at how much real estate was under the grip of early Winter cold.  Parts of NE KS/W MO had their coldest November on record.

We limped our way into the Top 10 in terms of snowfall here. We got 7.2" over the month, which ties the amount we got in our lowest snow season on record, and is good for 9th all time in November.
