The November Storm two years ago seems like a distant memory.
This year, like last year, we're basking in the November Warm.
Temperatures near 60 degrees will keep the Buffalo Niagara region unseasonably warm Tuesday and Wednesday.
The above-average readings should secure November 2016's place in the the area's Top 10 list of warmest Novembers.
Heading into Monday, the average monthly temperature this month reached 44.6 degrees. That's 3.4 degrees above average.
And, it ties 2006 for 10th place on the all-time list for warm Novembers.
With forecast highs near 50 degrees Monday and 60 degrees each of the next two days, and overnight lows only in the 40s, it looks like this November could slide in just under last year's seventh-place finish.
Clouds will increase today with rain expected overnight and gusty southeast winds.
The National Weather Service posted a wind advisory for Southern Erie and Chautauqua counties from 1 a.m. to 7 a.m. Tuesday. Southerly gusts up to 50 mph are possible.
The southerly flow of air will help to boost temperatures to 59 degrees Tuesday with mostly sunny conditions forecast.
Rain is expected again on Wednesday with a high forecast of 57 degrees.
The average high in Buffalo for the last three days in November is 42 degrees with overnight lows below freezing.
So far in November, temperatures dipped below average on only five of the first 27 days.
Temperatures reached the 70s on two days this month and reached the 60s on four days.
That's quite a change from the week of Nov. 17-21, 2014, when a pair of historic snowstorms buried the Southtowns and eastern suburbs under 7 seven feet of snow.
