Temperatures have been up and down like a roller coaster.
In spite of a brief mid-month warm up, the Northeast was cooler than normal for November. With an average temperature of 37.2 degrees, it was 2.5 degrees cooler than normal and it was the coolest November since 1997. All states reported below average temperatures for the first time since October 2009.
I hope you like roller coasters because the ride is going to continue for a while! Cold temps today will not last long because we will warm up again by the weekend and back down we go towards the beginning and middle of next week.

All-time record high temperatures were set at several location in south central Alaska Monday afternoon.
A potent area of low pressure will move along this rim and drop down the front side bringing a round of severe weather to Maryland Wednesday evening/night through Thursday afternoon (timing is still in question).
As the moisture from this tropical low moves north it will interact with a trough out to the west. This will increase Maryland's rain chances late Thursday into early Saturday morning.
Meteorologists with the National Weather Service and researchers from the University of Oklahoma continue to investigate the May 31st El Reno tornado that hit just west of Oklahoma City.
No big shocker here. Oklahoma shares the top of the list of states with the most tornadoes rated either F5 or EF5 since 1950.
