Autumn's Average Temperature Drops in Quad Cities

Quad Cities residents faced a colder autumn than last year. And, that could be the trend for winter too.  
 
Tom Olsen, from the National Weather Service in the Quad Cities, says the average temperature in September, October, and November was 49 degrees, three degrees colder than last year.
 
November's average temperature was 32 degrees, 7.7 degrees below normal. And, that's four degrees colder than November last year.
 
And Olsen says normal November snowfall in the Quad Cities is 1.2 inches, but last month, officially we received 4.6. 
 
He says last winter was the "snowiest winter" ever for the area, and the sixth coldest. Meteorologists are predicting less precipitation this winter, but there's a chance it'll be colder than last year.
