Multiple frost and freeze chances over the next 5 nights
It was a chilly start across southeast Wisconsin this morning with some inland spots falling at or below freezing!
Your plants should be okay tonight as temps are only expected to fall into the upper 30s to low 40s, but the following two nights you’ll want to cover your plants or bring them inside if you can.
A freeze is expected away from the lake Thursday night, with a light frost possible lakeside. However, a widespread freeze looks likely for everybody Friday night into Saturday morning. Another freeze could be possible Sunday night away from the lake.
While we’re past the average date of our last freeze in our lakeside and southern communities, inland spots usually experience their last freeze between May 1st and 10th.
Freezing temperatures in May aren't that common in Milwaukee, but our likely below freezing temp Saturday morning won't even crack the top 5 latest freezes on record for Milwaukee.
We're keeping an eye on record lows for the end of the week, but at this point temps aren't expected to get cold enough to break the old records. The record low for Friday the 8th is 30° (1947) and is 26° (1966) for Saturday the 9th. Good news is temps looks to rebound during the end of next week.
