Kari's November Weather Report


I’m back again to discuss my monthly weather report from My AcuRite.

 

Back by popular demand! Precipitation totals!

 

 

Some of you noticed we removed the precipitation totals in the October Report. We did this because, for our northern friends, winter precipitation can really mess up the rainfall totals if you’re not careful.  The rain gauge only measures precipitation when the snow or freezing rain melts, what we call liquid equivalent. But since many of you requested the data, we’ve included it again in the monthly report.  Please make sure you’re aware of what you’re looking at when analyzing the data – especially if you’re in an area that can get snow or that messy frozen/ mixed precipitation.

 

 

But not me! You can see in my report that in the San Francisco Bay Area, we finally received a good rainfall over Thanksgiving week.  The day with the most rainfall accumulation occurred on November 26th with a total of 0.82 inches, reported by my AcuRite Atlas™.  It has pretty much rained on and off since we’ve got a pretty good atmospheric river coming in.  So, my December weather report will include more of this, which is a great start for the Sierra snowpack and the 2020 water year for California!

 

Share and discuss your rainfall totals or liquid equivalent in the comments below, you’ll hear more from me next month and in the meantime, Happy Holidays!

November rainfall for station KOKOWASS10, Owasso, OK, 3.48". November high 74F and a low of 15F. HIgh wind gust was 30mph out of the WNW. Usually here in OK freezing precipitation starts out as rain changing to snow or freezing rain.

I always heard that it was 10 to 1. Didn't know it was temperature dependent.

About snow build up on weather station is there any spray or solution to keep the snow form accumulating. It stops the wind vane and wind speed indicator?

You can absolutely spray the exterior of the sensor with WD-40, a basic non-stick cooking spray, or car wax spray to help the snow slip off of the sensor.

I like the personalized weather report for November. Hope this will be a monthly feature.

Instead of sending a monthly report, why not show my how I can download MY data being sent to you. I used to do it through Weather Underground but that service was purchased by IBM is no longer provided for personal access (only business/enterprise).
