Yeah, so, not a typical start for November

early november temperatures table

* Forecasted high temps for those days this week.

Some of the best weather days of the entire year have been this week -- and it's early November... which feels odd.

So, we looked up the high temps for the first week of November over the last 10 years and dumped 'em all into the table above. The 30-year normal high temp for each day is at the bottom of each column, and the days are color coded by how much they differed from that normal temp (red warmer, blue cooler).

Whenever we get a run of seemingly atypical weather like this, we think of global warming. Of course, scientists often say it's hard to attribute any one weather event with climate change. But when we get weeks like this in November -- and the "best November ever" a few years back -- it does make us a wonder a bit.

(2015 is shaping up to likely be the warmest year on record globally.)

As that rare northeastern who actually loves winter, this makes me weep :(

I don't think that's what's meant by "serpentine belt replacement".
