Indecisive Mother Nature gives us temperatures all over the place
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58)--First off, Happy National Weatherperson's Day on this Saturday, February 5th. It's always a lot of fun, especially coming off Groundhog Day (& my bday!!) This important holiday honors all meteorologists in all realms, including industry, government, and media. It actually commemorates the birthday of Jeff Jeffries, born on this date in 1744. Dr. Jeffries, a scientist and surgeon, is considered one of America's first weather observers. He kept records from 1744 to 1816. He also pioneered the field of ballooning in the U.S. and took his first observation in the late 1700s.
Meantime, look for fairly quiet weather to get us into the next week. I guess the biggest talker will be the wild swings with the temperatures. We'll go from the 20s one day (Saturday & Monday) to near 40 the next (Sunday & Tuesday). Look for temps to even out a bit by the end of the week with readings in the 30s. A cool front Sunday afternoon and evening could give us a bit of snow. Then we face a better chance of snow perhaps by the end of next week with a stronger Clipper system. Stay tuned.
