So far this month, Poughkeepsie has received just over half an inch of precipitation. With no precipitation forecast over the next three days, it is pretty safe to say that November 2012 will be the driest on record for the city. Records go back to 1948.

Glens Falls also recorded its driest November since 1948. Albany recorded its 4th driest.
