PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — It’s been a November to remember. In fact, few alive today could say they remember a November like what we just had.

As we are wrapping up the month, it is now clear that we will finish in the top five when it comes to warmest November months ever. Through the 28th of the month, we have seen a monthly average high mean (high + low) of 49.3 degrees. The last time we saw temperatures that were warmer than that was 1931 when we averaged 51.6 degrees. That was the warmest November since records began to be kept in 1880 for Pittsburgh. The only two other years where we saw temperatures running warmer than this year in November were in 1902 (51.2 degrees) and 1909 (50.4 degrees).

The heat has played a role as well when it comes to just how little snow we have seen so far this season. The 2010 – 2011 snow season was the last time we started off with this little snow to start a season. This year makes 5 out of the last 10 years where we have seen no measurable snow through the end of November for Pittsburgh. Overall, we have seen just 22 years with no measurable snow for the month of November since 1880.

It appears that the lack of snow may continue well into December with model data showing little in the way of accumulating snow through at least December 10th. Temperatures, however, appear to have returned to a more seasonal look for the start of December.
