August Ends as 4th Warmest in Milwaukee
The last day of August was one of the coolest days of August, but it didn't stop the month from being one of the warmest on record. From August 1-20 we went through the second longest stretch of days on record in the 80s and only four days all month ended up below-average. When crunching the numbers August ended tied for the fourth warmest on record.
September 1 is also the start of meteorological fall in the weather world meaning the stats for meteorological summer are over. Those stats show that meteorological summer (June, July, August) will go down as the 5th warmest in Milwaukee.
As we head into September temperatures look to start cool but then warm up for the second week.
When look at the September stats the month starts with an average high temperature of 76° but ends with an average high of 65°. We also lose just under an hour on our sunset time and typically see just over 3" of rain.
