Brief Chill Replaced By Warmth
It was a chilly start to our weekend! We had widespread 30s on Saturday morning, with the exception of Milwaukee, and a handful of spots still fell to the 30s this morning. Take a look:
Even though it was cool today, it was a seasonable fall day. We started out two degrees above normal on the morning low temp, and made it to sixty-one degrees in Milwaukee this afternoon. That's just one degree shy of the normal high of sixty-two degrees for today's date. And while it has started to feel cooler as of late, we continue to break records in regards to warmth. Today marks 144 days of high temperatures at sixty degrees or above. We already broke the previous record of 140 days set back in 2005 and signs show the trend will continue. Weather data looks to swing back to warmer than normal conditions starting tomorrow. Our in house Readycast model has temps rising to the mid to upper range 60s with a possible run at seventy in spots. Tuesday looks just as warm, despite the chance for a midday shower. Wednesday holds a better chance for showers and then we should cool behind that system. Right now it looks like we could end our record stretch of sixty degree plus weather on Thursday. BUT, if we don't, we could go another week in that stretch as temps look to be in the 60s and even 70s right through the middle parts of the following work week.
We like fall, but let's just enjoy the treat of late season heat while we can.
