Abstract : A precipitation maximum in mid-November is demonstrated for Point Mugu, California, and at a number of other locations in California as well as at a few locations in the Mountain States and the Midwest. Peaks are found between 14 and 16 November in both daily precipitation occurrence and daily average amount during the years 1946 through 1965. This singularity may be related to the late November storminess common in Europe and may possibly be generated by perturbations induced in the Northern Hemisphere circulation as the stratospheric summer easterlies break down after the autumnal equinox.
