November in Akron was one for the record books.

The National Weather Service says last month was the second wettest ever recorded at the Akron Canton Airport since weather records were first established back in 1887.

Some 6.34 inches of wet stuff — all but one tenth of it was rain — fell in November.

This is nearly double the average for the month of 3.3 inches.

We are a bit behind in snowfall as 3 inches of the white stuff typically falls by the end of November.

But this may all be changing soon.

Mild temperatures on Sunday were to lead to an even warmer Monday when the mercury tops out near 60.

A strong cold front will push across Northeast Ohio, bringing rain and perhaps thunder, gusty winds and colder temperatures.

The weather service warns wind gusts as high as 28 mph are expected Monday.

Temperatures will start out in the 50s early on Tuesday and drop to the 20s by the end of the day.

The weather service says the rest of the week might look and feel a lot like Christmas as temperatures will remain below freezing and snow showers are expected through Saturday.
