Record-Breaking Cold July Weekend

July 29th, 2013 at 8:55 am by under News, Weather

It sure was a cold July weekend.  The highs Saturday and Sunday were in the upper 50s to low 60s.  Record cold maximum temperatures were set in many locations including Green Bay, Appleton and Oshkosh.  If it felt like fall to you that’s because these temperatures are “normal” for early October!

Here’s something you don’t see every day…it was much warmer in Alaska than it was around here in July.  The cold and clouds, the result of a big upper-level low pressure area spinning to the north over the weekend,  brought colder than normal temperatures to much of the region.  In fact the 75 degrees you see in northern Alaska is a place called Arctic Valley.  Yes we were colder than Arctic Valley, Alaska!
