January Weather Recap

The month of January is now in the rear view mirror! What a wild ride it was!! We started the new year on a very cold note!

 Overall it turned out to be a milder than average month. Take a look at some of the highlights:
 We had substantial temperature swings as the month unfolded. That cold start featured six of our eight nights in the single digits. Of those, three dropped below zero! Although the first of the month was the only day that got stuck in the single-digits for a high temperature.

After the frigid start we were treated to back to back days in the 50s on the 10th and 11th of the month.

Additionally, the first two weeks of January went virtually snow free before snow with lake enhancement brought us some decent mid month snow totals. Places like Milwaukee grabbed eight inches of fresh powder through the 15th and 16th and you probably remember some of those spots in Sheboygan county picking up over a foot of the white stuff during that event!

The rest of the month was fairly mild with a few other small scale snow events. Overall, not bad this time around.

Now it's onto February! It's the last month of meteorological winter. Based on today's weather, let's hope it goes by quick!
