While astronomical fall doesn't end until Dec. 21, the fall season for meteorologists ends on Wednesday.
Meteorological fall extends from Sept. 1 to Nov. 30, and for that three month period, we can now say unequivocally that autumn 2016 is the warmest recorded for Dallas-Fort Worth since records began in 1898.
The mean temperature for the entire fall season was 73.1 degrees.
This past month was likewise the warmest November ever recorded, with an average temperature of 63.6 degrees.
November was wetter than normal, with rainfall of 3.17 inches, after a very dry September and October.
