Record high temperature was set Monday
November of 2017 will go down in history as one of the warmest on record in this region.
The record high of 81 degrees this past Monday, November 27, was the latest, and possibly last, in a string of unseasonably warm weather. There were a total of eight days in November with highs above 70, and three more in the high 60s. There was only one day with a high below 40, November 7 when the high was just 33 degrees.
It was 73 degrees in Yuma on Thanksgiving, November 23.
The National Weather Service out of Goodland, Kansas, reported there was a record high in Yuma on Monday, November 27, when 81 degrees shattered the previous record high of 74 set in 1998.
The warm weather also was accompanied by dry conditions. Total precipitation in November in Yuma was 0.17 of an inch.
A cold front brought in cooler air on Tuesday, when the high was just 47. However, it still was supposed to stay fairly warm with highs in the 50s and 60s through early next week, and with no chance of significant precipitation anywhere on the horizon.
