Daytona Beach, FL – Last month was the 4th driest November on record for Daytona Beach, but the good news is we’re expected to get some rain tonight and tomorrow – plus a cold front will be pushing through on Thursday and Friday and it’s expected to bring some of the lowest temperatures of the season.
Since Hurricane Matthew came by in early October, conditions have dried out. We haven’t seen sustained heavy rainfall since that storm dumped up to 7 inches of rain in Volusia County. During the month of November, Daytona Beach International Airport measured only .1 inches of rain. Typically, we get about 2.7 inches of rain in November.
The month was also a little warmer than usual. “Our average temperature ended up being around 67 degrees,” said Meteorologist Will Ulrich with the National Weather Service in Melbourne, “and that’s about .5 degrees above what’s normal.”
The good news is that a cold front is expected to pass through tonight and tomorrow morning, bringing some much needed rainfall with it. Those showers should last into the early afternoon hours with rainfall totals reaching around .25 to half an inch.
There’ll be another chance for rainfall later this week when another cold front pushes through on Thursday night and Friday. In fact, that cold front is expected to bring some of the coldest weather of the season with daytime highs struggling to get out of the 50s and lows possibly dipping down into the 30s.
