Did you know the Edmund Fitzgerald sank in a fierce storm on November 10, 1975?

As Gordon Lightfoot wrote in his song about the Fitzgerald, which sank in the waters of Lake Superior:

That good ship and true was a bone to be chewed
When the gales of November came early.

What's with these powerful winds and storms as we move from October to November?

Mark Torregrossa, MLive and farmerweather.com meteorologist joined us to talk about "the gales of November." 

And as the Guns N’ Roses song "November Rain" goes:

…It's hard to hold a candle 
In the cold November rain.
