Map of the Northern Water Resources Outlook Region

November 14, 2014 - November precipitation has been quite light so far with only 1/4 to 3/4 inch for most areas. Southeast Pennsylvania and the southern half of New Jersey have been wetter with 1 to as much as 2 1/2 inches in some spots. Through the middle of the month, temperatures for November have been averaging about normal. Over the past 90 days, precipitation for much of southern New York and Pennsylvania has been running 4 to 6 inches below average. The southern half of New Jersey has only been 1 to 2 inches below.

Current (November 14) streamflow data from the U.S. Geological Survey shows that streamflows are running below or much below normal for most areas. Flows in the southern half of New Jersey are about normal. Groundwater levels are below normal in northeast Pennsylvania and the Catskill Region of New York. Elsewhere, groundwater levels are near normal.

The weather outlook for the next couple of weeks calls for below normal precipitation for most of the period, though precipitation is expected to be above normal by late in the period. Temperatures are expected to be below or much below average. The NWS Climate Prediction Center's 90 day outlook for November, 2014 through January, 2015 calls for near average precipitation and above average temperatures.

The outlook for water resources and water supplies remains "good" across most of southern New York, most of Pennsylvania, and the southern half of New Jersey. In the Catskill Region of New York, eastern Pennsylvania, and the northern half of New Jersey, water resources and supplies are fair. After beneficial rain in October, dry conditions have returned so improvement in water resources and supplies has slowed considerably. However, as we approach winter, further degradation will be slow to occur and improvement may occur quite quickly if wet weather were to occur.
