National Snow and Ice - November 2004

NCEI added Alaska climate divisions to its nClimDiv dataset on Friday, March 6, 2015, coincident with the release of the February 2015 monthly monitoring report. For more information on this data, please visit the Alaska Climate Divisions FAQ.

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.
