November brings the autumn season to an end as the cold takes over, signaling the onset of the winter. The fall foliage is past its peak by mid-November as the weather rapidly cools down. The average high temperatures are in the cold 37°F (2.8°C) to 46°F (7.8°C) range, while nights drop below freezing and register in the 21°F (-6.1°C) to 30°F (-1.1°C) range. Though the rainfall hardly crosses 2" (51mm), November sees the first snow in many regions, and averages 5" (127mm) - Drummond in northern Wisconsin registers 12.5" (318mm), while Bayfield near Lake Superior records 14.3" (363mm). The days become shorter, and sunny days are far and few between cloudy ones. Evenings are windy, and the nights are chilly in many parts of the state in the latter half of November. The growing season is over as snow starts to cover vast stretches of land. Overall, November ends the tourist season in Wisconsin, and very few brave hearts stay to endure the winter!
