    1. Season shift. Seems this is pretty much the norm now for November. I do not recall many years before the turn of the century when I put out Christmas lights in a tee shirt.

        1. There’s plenty of cold. It’s just in the other side of the world right now. Teleconnectors aren’t favorable to pull it over the top of the world to our hemisphere yet. And it’s just late fall. We don’t get deep lasting cold this time of year. Climo’s a bear 😉

          1. On November 26, 1992, it was 57 with a low of 35. Thanksgiving week in 2013 most days the highs were right around freezing with lows in the teens and 20’s. It’s still fall folks.

            1. Yea but…..I just like to say yea but.

              Of course we have the off days. Either hot or cold. It comes with season change. It is warmer later. Just watching the snow amounts….lack of skiing with natural snow…or lack of ice on lakes up north is enough. of course there are cold days and of course there are warm days. Every year since 2000 has set a record for being the warmest on record. Yes, records have been kept for a comparatively short period of time compared to the existence of earth. But it is warmer than we have seen in our lifetime. That is my only point. And for the record, I am not complaining. Just observing 🙂 🙂

    Just a little perspective.

    1. Yup sounds about right. normally Winter arrives somewhere between the
      5th and 20th of December and is highly variable each year. Except of course, the years where it never arrives. 😀 😀 😀

    1. Well done! Not sure why people think the weather is suppose to behave and follow a perfect defined pattern. Weather and climate don’t care what we think. I do this too and tend to remember things in the past as “better” 0r a certain way. When I really look at the facts though it’s all in my head ha.

  3. It’s just one week of data in November, but the numbers are fairly similar. I ran a two tailed T test on the 2 sets of numbers and at p=o.05, there was no significant difference. I’m sure the numbers would be even closer if I ran every year from 1920.

    We’re basically where we should be for the time of year. As I said, there’s plenty of old, it’s just on the other side of the world right now. The tele’s/pattern just aren’t favorable to move it over the pole into Canada right now. We know there have been cold winters over the past 100 years. It’s just that even late November climo in southern New England isn’t conducive for a lot of cold.

    1. We will agree to disagree. I spent too many Christmas vacations and every weekend after that…..decades…skiing on natural snow to know it has not changed.

      I wasn’t saying snow late November. I never have said that. But I am saying that short sleeves at this time of year is not the norm for a decade ago.

  4. KBOS is Logan
    KBOX is Taunton
    KORH is Worcester. LEach reporting station has an abbreviation .i should have just said Logan 🙂

  5. You’ll wake up to a new forecast post…

    After taking mom out for her Sunday morning stuff, I’ll be attempting a 12-hour decorating marathon with my son. 😉
