***Watch WISN 12 News for the latest weather information!***
Thank you for stopping by the Weather Watch 12 blog! Winter just doesn’t want to give up. A trace or more of snow has been reported in Milwakuee four of the past five days.
Record snows hit the region on Tuesday. Milwaukee picked up 0.1″ of snow, not a lot, but good for a daily record for April 19. Green Bay saw a whopping 10.1″, the biggest one day snow this late in the season.
As I stepped out the door this morning snow and sleet still covered the mulch in my yard near Hartland. The Daffodils were certainly hoping for more ‘typical’ spring weather to return soon.
While it won’t be as cold in the coming days, readings will remain below average. The RPM temperature forecast map for Thursday shows readings inland sneaking into the low 50s, but likely staying in the 40s along the lakeshore.
The cooler readings near Lake Michigan will be attributed to east to southeast winds blowing over the chilly waters.
While Thursday will be dry, it won’t last long. Low pressure will push into the Midwest on Friday. This will help to produce another round of showers and thunderstorms in our area.
Make sure to watch WISN 12 for the timing of the showers and thunderstorms on Friday. We are also tracking a warm-up in the next 7 days that may push highs back into the 60s!
Have a great day!
