It hasn't felt this cold since March 2011! As previously noted in Kerrin Jeromin's blog here, November 2012 was the first colder-than-average month since March 2011. The Burlington International Airport had 19 consecutive months warmer-than-average. The streak ended at 11:59 p.m. local time on Friday, November 30. See the images to the left for stats on high and low temperatures for November 2012.
Here is how other towns fared for the month too.
Like I said, the long 'warm streaks' were in Massena, NY and Burlington/Springfield, VT. The other locations (Saranac Lake, NY and Montpelier/St.J, VT) weren't as impressive but were still notable. I'm sorry I don't have more towns but climate data is only available for a select number of towns.
Since March 2011....
So far December 2012 is starting on the warm note. The first day was very cool, with temperatures running about -7° to average, but then jumping to about +9° for Sunday, the 2nd of December. This warm thaw will be here until Wednesday afternoon with a total of about 90 hours with temperatures >32°. Then we'll sink back to a period of time where towns will not get >32° for about 36 hours. So we're in an up-and-down pattern in terms of temperatures. I think even with the November cool stat, our area will have the warmest year on record. Don't quote me on that yet!
