National Snow & Ice - November 2004
NCDC transitioned to the nClimDiv dataset on Thursday, March 13, 2014. This was coincident with the release of the February 2014 monthly monitoring report. For details on this transition, please visit our public FTP site and our U.S. Climate Divisional Database site.
As can be seen in the animated image to the right, snow extent further increased across North America during November, with anomalously sustained snow cover for the time of year in west-central Canada and parts of the western U.S., with less than average snow cover through the month in the upper Midwest. A major snowfall event occurred across areas of the West over the Thanksgiving weekend on the 28th and 29th.
