WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The month of November is coming to a close. 22News Storm Team Meteorologist Jennifer Pagliei is working for you with a look back on what we experienced.
November was somewhat of a quiet weather month.
Hurricane season ends on November 30th and we experienced no hurricanes this time around.
In fact, much of November was dry, with parts of western Massachusetts being abnormally dry or even moderate dry at some points. As we near the end of November, we just barely made it to 2 inches of rainfall, and our average is around 4 inches.
Our temperatures for November was a bit of a different story.
Just ask, Jeff Maceyka, from Granville, told 22News, “It’s been up and down you really never know if its going to be 32 degrees out or 50 when you walk out the door in the morning.”
We broke two records highs and even tied a record low. And one was pretty recent. Just this past Friday we broke a record high temperature at 67 degrees on Friday, our last record was back in 1946 at 62 degrees.
One thing we didn’t see this month, was snow.
And with temperatures near 70 just the other day it was hard for some people to get into the “winter weather mode”. But with winter officially starting December 21st, the instant thought of being ready kicks in.
And what better way to be ready than by getting snow tires. Some people took advantage of the sales these past few days, where others wait to actually see the snow first.
22News went to Town Fair Tire in West Springfield and talked to Guy Habart, the manager at Town Fair Tire, who told 22News, “I mean we do sell our shares before that but the time the 3 or 4 days before the first snow forecast is when it really begins to kick in.”
The first or second snow storm of the season is usually when stores get busy.
