Almanac for November 2014

23 October 2014
Published in Monthly Almanacs

November is a rather cold and dreary month. Weather systems crossing relatively warm Lake Ontario into colder air lead to frequent cloudy days in the Mohawk Valley. There are occasionally a few warmer days with afternoon high temperatures sometimes reaching 60°, but most of the time temperatures are under 50°F and a jacket is needed and occasionally a winter coat, as mornings are often frosty.

The landscape is predominantly gray and brown, with a dash or two of burnt orange or crimson of sumac or the few leaves that remain. This quickly changes with the first seasonal snowfall. In some recent years, we received only a trace of snow in November. Most years, however, the Mohawk Valley receives its first significant snowfall in November.

About Us

The Mohawk Valley Almanac provides a wide variety of information on fairs and festivals, wildlife, and the natural world in this historic region of central New York State. Many annual regional fairs and festivals celebrate the seasons, agriculture, historical and religious holidays, the arts, sports, and ethnic heritage of the diverse population. The natural world of birds and other wildlife, weather, astronomy, and gardening in a climate with cold and snowy winters are also featured.

We hope to make the Mohawk Valley Almanac a gateway to this area of Central New York for anyone interested in the natural world and regional festivals of the greater Mohawk Valley.
