Drought footprint keeps shrinking
FRISCO — The average temperature across the U.S. was slightly below average in November, mainly driven by cool readings in the eastern half of the country, according to the monthly climate update from NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center.
A large swath of states extending from Texas up to the Northeast reported below average temperatures for the month. Warmer than average temperatures were reported across the desert Southwest and in Florida.
The average temperature of 41.6 degrees was just 0.3 degrees below the 20th century average, ranking near the median value in the 119-year period of record.
