November kept the streak going for 2010 with an overall temperature that was a degree hotter than average. We have now seen above average temperatures for each of the 11 months of the year.
There was a regular hot streak from the 8th to the 14th and then a crazy 25 hours around the 22nd when it never went below 10 °C. On the graphs you can really see the difference in the daily cycle of temperature between the sunny/dry first half of the month and the cloudy/wet second half.
So after that incredibly dry first half of November, the second half made up for it getting us into the average range for the month. The total precipitation for the month was 72.7 mm with almost half of that coming on two wet days (16.8 on the 16th and 17.4 on the 30th).
We are now at 842.9 mm of precipitation for the year, a little above the average for this time which is 830.3 mm. It also looks likely that for the second year in row we will have an overall average year for precipitation.
