Local Weather History:  The Most Days In the 70s In November
It is interesting to note that all of my years have matched the past three have all had near/record warmth in early to mid-November. 
Their commonality?  They are all solid, long-duration traditional La Ninas.
 
Those seem to be associated with Fall drought, fires & warmth.  Last year's record wet October was a very rare exception.
 
We have the potential to see a record number of 70 or better days here in 2022 given the forecast trends.

Image is from the October 31, 1964 Purdue home game against Illinois.  This was the beginning of the impressive late-season 1964 warmth.  It was a 70-degree day at the Purdue Airport.  Purdue won 26 to 14!

Sure beats the Old Oaken bucket game on November 21 when the high was 18 & the low was 10!  However, Purdue won in that bitter cold!
