On Thursday, along with the Winter Outlook, the Climate Prediction Center issued their 30 day forecast for November. Mild weather is likely ahead, as warmer than average temperatures are favored across most of the nation. Below normal precipitation is forecast for the Southeast, which will worsen the drought conditions in the area. Wetter than average weather is on the way from the Front Range to the High Plains.
Above-normal temperatures are favored across nearly the entirety of the country during November. Increased chances for below-normal rains for much of the South may lead to worsening or expansion of #drought conditions. https://t.co/JI2DUvhln5 pic.twitter.com/M765KzD0Uu

The November outlook was largely based on dynamical models and statistical tool guidance, and to a lesser degree, current global conditions. Overall trends and model forecasts support warmth across much of the nation and drier conditions in the Southeast.
