Episode Narrative The drought affecting northeastern Minnesota from the summer through late autumn led to a continuation of D3 (extreme) drought conditions in November, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor. Most locations were well below normal for precipitation this month. Duluth recorded only 1.22 inches of precipitation, which wasd 0.90 inch below normal for the month. The drought was having adverse effects on lake levels, with Lake Superior being nearly one foot below normal in November. In fact, the last time Lake Superior was this low during November was in the mid 1920s. Many other lakes were well below their normal levels.
