If you think November 2017 was dry – you are right. However, it won’t go in the record books as the driest November. That place is held by November 1989 when the state-wide average precipitation was zero! Of the 285 stations that reported that month, only 32 had any measurable precipitation at all. Only one had a monthly total greater than a tenth of an inch – Neosho Rapids, in Lyon County, with a paltry 0.32 inches. Their normal November precipitation would be 2 and a half inches. November can be wet however. The wettest November on record was in 1909, when the state-wide average precipitation was 4.89 inches.
