Quarterly Climate Impacts and Outlook for the Southern Region for September – November 2019. Dated December 2019.
Fall temperatures as a whole were near normal, but there were two distinct regimes. Record warmth was experienced from September through early October while the end of October through November were much cooler than normal. Precipitation behaved in a similar fashion, with several stations experiencing their driest September on record followed by their wettest October on record.
NOAA’s Regional Climate Services Program created these Climate Outlooks to inform the public about recent climate impacts within their respective regions. Each regional report contains easy-to-understand language, and anyone can access them through the Drought Portal at https://www.drought.gov/drought/resources/reports.
