Mild temperatures continue to end January with colder air looming in February
This January, and most of this winter, has been very mild. The coldest high temperature happened back in November and we have yet to see a high temp in the teens during December or January. Out of 27 days in the books in January 25 of them have been at or above-average. January is on track to end as one of the top 10 warmest on record.
The mild streak looks to last through the last few days of the month with highs staying in the low to middle 30s. Quite a difference from a year ago when we had high temperatures drop as low as -10°.
If you are looking for some colder air we have some good news for you as the calendar flips into February. The first couple days of the new month look to be very mild but then cooling down with highs in the 20s to wrap up the first week of the month. The Climate Prediction Center gives Wisconsin a 40% chance for below-average temps.
