Cleves 3 NW (James Davis) - Near normal temperatures and rain

Kidron 1N (Ronald Hahn) -  The first 16 days of November temperatures ran well above normal, but the last 14 days were generally colder though quite changeable.  Liquid precipitation was .57 inches below normal, while snowfall was above normal.  New daily snowall records were set on the 22nd and 23rd.  The 25th was the coldest November 25th in my records, while the 28th was the warmest November 28th in my records.  Quite a change!  For the month, temperatures averaged neraly 3 degrees above normal.

North Ridgeville (Dave Heideloff) -

Ottawa 4E (Phil & Bonnie Higley) Started out mild, then when we got towards the middler of the month it started to turn cooler then COLD, after we got our first measureable snowfall.  One day towards the end we did hit 70F onces again.  Haven't seen that for a long while now...

Perrysville 4W (Katie Gerwig) -  November was slightly warmer than normal with slightly less precip than nomral.  There were 4 thunderstorm days.  First snow the 16th (trace) and 3.4" for the month.  At least 5 days with very strong winds.

Ravenna 1E (Rich Rabatin) - Looks like ol' man winter made it here at this station.  The first trace of snow fell on the 17th with only a trace and then on the 24th, it put down 4.4" of snow. The lowest Barometer reading was on the 24th with a reading of 29.17.  At first I thought my barometer was out of wack, but checking around the area, the readings were the same or close to it. I've seen enough snow and cold weather, now bring on the sun and warm temps.

Ravenna 1SE (Gary Locke)  First trace of snowfall for season occured on 11/16/05.  Total snowfall for season is 5.5 inches.  No severe wx was observed but there were 4 days during month when there was a threat for severe weather according to SPC.

Springfield (Dick Groeber) Locally, this month was noted by extremes of temperature and atmospheric pressure. Most of the total fell during the last twothirds. The lowest reading, 13 degrees on the 25th was the 3rd lowest of station record dateing to 1968. The low barometer of 29.30 inches on the 27th was also the 3rd lowest of station record. Overall, temperatures and precipitation were above the station record averages.

Van Wert (Rick McCoy) - The month began with above normal temperatures and ended with below normal temperatures.  It was a windy month and a stormy month with 3 gustnadoes (small tornadoes F-1's on the gust front) on Nov. 6th.  Had 2 Tornado Watches, 2 Severe Thunderstorm Watches, 1 Severe Thunderstorm Warning, 3 Wind Advisories, and 1 Freezing Rain Advisory.

Wooster 7N (Jack Sisler) November was a month of temperature extremes. Even though mean temperatures were only a little more than two degrees above normal I still had five record highs established in my fourteen years of records at this location. In just four days (25th thru 28th) I had a temperature difference of 59 degrees with a record low of 8 degrees on the 25th and a record high of 67 degrees on the 28th. I had my first measurable snow for the season on the 22nd with 1.0 inches and the most 24-hour snowfall for the month the following day with 2.9 inches.

Subject: Active Weather Weekend 


When temperatures got as warm as they did early in the weekend for
this time of year you knew you were going to pay the price. I
counted over 70 storm reports for Ohio for Saturday and Sunday
combined.

I kind of took a personal interest in the F3 tornado that hit
Evansville Indiana early Sunday morning. I went to a junior college
about 50 miles north of there (Vincennes) back in the late 60's and
had some college buddies from that area at the time.

An interesting note to make is how some of the news media was saying
how rare it is for tornados to strike this time of year. Yes,it is
rare the further north you are and it has been a below normal year
for tornados, however, there is a slight rise in the number of
significant tornados (F2 or greater)during October and November
according to the SPC stats over the years. Many of us remember the
F4 tornado in the Van Wert area November 10, 2002 that had
fatalities and the F2 tornado November 12, 2003 that struck the
Wooster area November 12, 2003 causing a few injuries and did $ 21
million dollars in damage.

Anyone experience any storm damage over the weekend? I had a wind
gust of 50 m.p.h. Sunday that pretty much redeposited the leaves
from my yard into a field across the road.

I was thinking the same thing early in the week when looking at the
forecast for the coming weekend. Winter or spring, the wx systems are
somewhat the same type...when you get unusual warm temps with a strong cold
front coming in. I have to agree that there seems to be more severe
weather in the late fall than I can ever remember. However, I do wonder
whether this is just a cluster in the past few years that in the future
will just be an anomaly... Only time will tell on that.

I recorded a gust of 49 mph as the original line came through. I think I
have leaves in my yard that came from about 5 miles away! During the onset
of the high winds, my security light popped on, and I could only see out
about 30' due to blowing leaves! I didn't have any damage other than 3
blown light bulbs from several power spikes. The track lighting in my ham
shack got REAL bright several times, with 2 out of the 4 bulbs burning out
within a minute or so. Computers and radios on UPSs were fine, but it did
get a little hairy there for a few minutes.

Look out for tomorrow night again. Looks like a similar setup on the way.
Lets' see... The 30th anniversary of the Fitz and the 3rd of Van Wert
tornado both on the 10th... Maybe it's time I head south in early November.

Hello Group; 
Those of you who have visited my weather web site in the past couple of months may have noticed my wind 
direction is North. I have no idea what type of bad luck I'm having with this equipment. It is frustrating as this 
problem has reared its ugly head a few times in the past. I simply can't afford to keep sending the unit to Davis Inst. 
to have checked/fixed. Does anyone out there have any home remedies to fix the problem? I'd dearly love to be able 
to view that all important wind direction as well as other aspectes of my weather information, but I can't at this time. 
Also, keep an eye on me weather site as more minor (or somewhat major) changes are in the works. If you have a 
weather web site you'd like listed in my links, send me a private e-mail with the current web address. I thank you in 
advance.

Having received my first measurable snow late yesterday and receiving
2.6 inches of snow in the past 12 hours as of 7 p.m. this evening it
looks more like Christmas instead of Thanksgiving. The roads here have
been snow covered since about 4 p.m. this afternoon with numerous

For those of you in the snowbelt I guess you'll need a yard stick and

that would eventually leave 15.0" from the 23rd to the 25th. Although
not the monster storm forcasted, this was the largest November
