November 16, 2017 November precipitation has been mostly 1/2 to 1 1/2 inches below for most areas. Wetter areas have been in south-central New York, parts of north-central Pennsylvania, and southern New Jersey where amounts have been about average. November temperatures have been mostly 1 to 3 degrees below normal. Over the past 90 days, precipitation has been about normal a couple of inches below for most areas. Parts of east-central Pennsylvania and northeastern-most New Jersey are running 3 to over 5 inches below.

Current (November 16) data from the U.S. Geological Survey shows that streamflows are normal in south-central New York and central Pennsylvania. Elsewhere, flows are below normal. Groundwater levels are near or above normal.

The weather outlook through the rest of November calls for near or above average precipitation to start but then below average conditions for much of the period. Temperatures are expected to be near or below average. The NWS Climate Prediction Center's 30 day outlook for December calls for near average precipitation and temperatures. The 90 day outlook for December 2017 through February 2018 calls for near or above average precipitation and above average temperatures.

The outlook for water resources and supplies is good for southern New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. With low sun intensity and the typical (seasonal) low water usage, only slow changes, if any, are expected in the near term. Slow degradation is possible in the event of a lengthy period of dry weather.
