Sure, a pretty powerful snowstorm blasted much of Northern Minnesota this month, but the rest November has been pretty warm. Heck, much of that snow we got has even melted by now from a warm up and rain. Aside from the time right around our snowstorm before Thanksgiving, the early and late parts of the month have been warmer than average. According to the National Weather Service, it's been one of the top 5 warmest on record for the Northland.

For Duluth, it is currently the third warmest on record. While the month isn't officially over yet (so the order could change slightly), here's the rankings of the 5 warmest Novembers on record.
