Des Moines, Iowa – RadioIowa – Iowa’s still on track for one of its warmest autumns and among the warmest years on record, according to the state climatologist. The month of November was exceptionally warm and Harry Hillaker says of the 30 days in the month, 27 of them had above-normal temperatures.

September and October were also much milder than what’s typical. In addition to being warmer, November was also much drier than normal for most of the Hawkeye State.

The southern Iowa town of Allerton only reported about a half-inch of rainfall for the month, far below normal. The National Weather Service issued a revised outlook for December earlier this week.

Hillaker says there’s a slight possibility of a major snow event in Iowa this weekend.
