November’s weather presented broad and interesting contrasts. The temperature plunge that began the day before Thanksgiving conveniently allowed celebrators to brine their turkeys outdoors, an impossibility for the refrigerator given the size of the pot.The snowstorm a day later added to the holiday enjoyment and broke the dry spell. The rain on the last day of the month turned a monthly precipitation deficit into a generous surplus.The average temperature of 42 degrees in Los Alamos was five degrees above normal. White Rock’s average of 40 degrees was only two degrees above normal.The difference was probably due to more than the usual cold nightly drainage flow common to White Rock; the average high temperatures in both towns and the average Los Alamos minimum temperature were all about five degrees above normal, while White Rock’s average night time low temperature was a degree colder than normal.High pressure throughout the southwest dominated in November, bringing sunny skies and unseasonable warmth. A backdoor cold front, so called because it comes from the northeast, dropped temps a bit around Nov.
