November was globally the 7th warmest such on record according to NOAA and 8th according to NASA (see Jeff Master’s blog for more about this). It was a cold month in the U.S. with some phenomenal lake-effect snowstorms. A powerful storm, dubbed a ‘Medicane’ formed in the Mediterranean Sea. Deadly floods occurred in Morocco, Italy, and Switzerland. It was the warmest November on record for Australia, Italy, Austria and much of Southeast Asia.Below are some of the month’s highlights.

Last Monday (Dec.8th) I posted a blog discussing the effect the California statewide rains of November 30-December 2nd had on the drought situation. As forecast, a major winter storm struck the state again this past week on Wednesday-Friday, December 10-12. The storm was the most powerful in at least two years to hit the state. Once again, another small step has been made so far as relieving the drought situation. Here is the latest update on the situation.

A very wet week from November 29th through December 6th brought widespread heavy rainfall to almost the entire state of California and has greatly improved the dire drought situation. With another big storm on the horizon there is hope that the worst of the long drought in California may at last be coming to an end.
