Wild 2008 Weather

Welcome to the Weather Watch 12 blog. It will be our pleasure to post our thoughts on the latest weather trends and try to use this blog to answer many of your weather questions.

Our crazy 2008 continues. Record snows, record rains, and we still have five months to go. If we stay in our current wet pattern, we may actually set the all-time annual rainfall record. Many of you are wondering what is going on. Why have we had such wild year? The answer lies mainly in the jet stream and the persistent placement allowing for plenty of gulf moisture to be wrung out here in Wisconsin and the upper midwest. I would love to be able to say that the pattern will be changing soon, but overall we are still going to be in an active area for more rain and storms.

In the meantime, enjoy the beautiful weather for Wednesday and Thursday with comfortable highs in the seventies and low levels of humidity. The next two days are what I consider perfect Wisconsin summer weather. Not too hot and not too cold. Our next chance of rain moves in on Friday, but chances are pretty low.

Thanks for reading and look for a lot more weather fun in the near future.

  1. Mark,

    What do you think this winter holds for us?? (I know the thought of snow already is crazy) Do ya’ think we’ll have as much snow as last, less or more?? I love Wisconsin but, this weather so far this year is killing me.


  2. Paula,
    It would be highly unlikely to get a repeat of last winter. The overall pattern is still one that is wet for us, but that will likely change before winter. Long range forecasts are very challenging, but we should know more as we move into Autumn. Enjoy the warm weather while we have it in August. Thanks for the note.
