Yeah, It’s Been Toasty: Warmest November Ever in Phoenix

Last month was the warmest November on record for Phoenix by each of three measurements: average maximum, average minimum and overall mean temperature. The details, from the National Weather Service Phoenix office:

November 2017 Normal Difference
Avg. High 82.9° 75.5° +7.4°
Mean 71.2° 64.1° +7.1°
Avg. Low 59.5° 52.7°  +6.8°

There’s a 47 percent chance 2017 will be the warmest year on record for Phoenix, the weather service said, and a 96 percent chance it’ll be in the Top 3, and a greater than 99 percent it will be in the Top 10. Those predictions factor in a 55 percent chance that December will be among the warmest third on record, based on large-scale climate patterns in place now.
