A Return To Seasonable Temps

It was great while it lasted! The warm temperatures, that is.  What started as a cold month turned much milder starting Saturday the 7th. That's when Milwaukee reached 46° for the high and only dropped to 20° for the low. That low was a MAJOR improvement from the previous 3 nights where lows floated around zero.  That mild trend only got better as we got into the 50s starting last week Monday. Additionally, most nights featured lows staying above that freezing mark resulting in our vanished snowpack. Friday the 13th featured our first 60° day in 130 days and yesterday we hit 71° in Milwaukee. That was the first seventy since October 27th, at 75°  Monday also tied the record high of 71° also met back in 1930. Here's a look at high temps the last five days for Milwaukee:


In the wake of a cold front, our temperatures have returned to the seasonable March levels of highs in the middle 40s and lows in the upper 20s. Today also features nearly equal lengths of day and night as our morning sunrise came in at 7:01 am and the sunset tonight will be at 7 pm.  By the way, Spring officially starts this Friday at 5:45 pm.
