A couple more days of records before temperatures drop
This has been a historic warm start to the month of November. We saw five straight days in the 70s from Tuesday of last week through Saturday. Sunday fell just one degree short with a high of 69* but still almost 20* above the average.
The five straight days in the 70s breaks a record for both number of 70*+ days during the month of November and number of consecutive 70*+ days in November. So far we have tied or broken three record high temperatures: Wednesday tied with a high of 73*, Friday at 74* and Saturday at 74*. The one record that has so far stayed elusive is the all time November record of 77* which has happened in four different years.
Temperatures on Monday will get back into the 70s. The current forecast of 76* would break the record for the day of 75* and come close to that all time November record of 77*. The record is not very warm currently at 66* set in 2016. With a forecast of 68* we would easily break the old record. In addition to record high temperatures we are also tracking the records for the record warmest low temperatures. For Monday, that record is 59* and so far the low has only dropped to 63* although we have to wait until midnight for the record to become official. Tuesday is similar with a record warmest low of 49*. We expect to wake up to temperatures in the 60s Tuesday morning but could get close to that record of 49 in the evening after the cold front arrives.
After a mix of sun and clouds with a few sprinkles on Monday, Tuesday will be our transition day. Some scattered showers are possible throughout the day with a cold front set to arrive in the afternoon and evening with some heavy rain and the chance for strong thunderstorms. Up to 1" of rain is possible.
