Wow it was HOT yesterday in the region with temperatures reaching the triple digits in many locations in Nebraska, Iowa and Minnesota. Minneapolis hit 98° and Sioux City, Iowa reached 106° which is the highest temperature ever for the month of May.
That hot weather impacted the western portion of Wisconsin as well with highs in the low 90s in Eau Claire and La Crosse.
It’ll be a beautiful day today with another tomorrow and right now the Marathon weekend in Green Bay looks nice too. We’ll be updating the all-important Sunday morning forecast frequently until race time. Enjoy the day!

Winter Storm Alan arrived Sunday morning; the snow continued through the day and made Green Bay look like…well, Green Bay for the national television audience on Sunday night football. The snow was light for the most part and started falling when temperatures were a bit above freezing so amounts were held down but 3 to 6 inches fell in most areas.
A great website to check out the snow totals of any day can be seen by clicking here.
If you’re wondering just how official measurements are taken and why the totals aren’t the same as in your backyard, Meteorologist Phil DeCastro got to the bottom of it. Check out his report.
Below are some snow totals from Alan but since reports vary even in different areas of the city, a more comprehensive list can be found at the Green Bay National Weather Service’s website. Also Milwaukee’s website

Slow down this morning, it is pea soupy out there. There’s a dense fog advisory in effect this morning with visibilities down to a quarter mile or less in many areas. Check our weather cameras to see what the driving conditions are where you’re going.
The best chance of showers will be from 4 pm to 10 pm and after that skies will clear and we’ll finally see sunshine tomorrow with highs near 48.
Although temperatures will be well above normal, we won’t set a record today (Record high in Green Bay is 62). There were numerous record highs set yesterday in the nation; most in Texas. Here’s a nice place to find record highs each day in the nation

Enjoy the next 2 days because a powerful cold front pushes through the state late tomorrow and we’ll feel the result on Friday morning.
After dense fog this morning the rest of the big travel day looks great with a high near 58°. If you’re traveling through the air you may want to check ahead on your flight as there were cancellations and delays with flights going into and out of Chicago.
We may set a new record high tomorrow for Thanksgiving as breezy southwest winds bring in temperatures near 60° .
It’ll be downright blustery on Friday with strong northwest winds and highs near 37.

Unseasonably mild weather will continue for a few more days with high temperatures between 13 and 17 degrees warmer than normal (the normal high is 40°) A cold front will impact us as we head into the long Holiday weekend.

We can expect fair weather through the weekend courtesy of a high pressure area which will drift west to east over the state. High temperature today will be near 42° with a northeast wind at 5-10 mph but winds turn to the south tomorrow and temperatures will top out near 50° for the weekend.
It’ll be a mild start to the gun deer season with temperatures near 30° and patchy fog at sunrise, otherwise mostly clear skies. Actually there’s not much difference in the opening day forecast no matter where you travel in the state. As for Thanksgiving, it’s still looking nice. Have a great day!

Very quiet weather continues with highs in the 40s and lows near 30. So let’s take a look at a couple of “Big Day” forecasts. First is the Gun Deer opener on Saturday. Things are holding with partly to mostly sunny skies at 7 am and temperatures near 30. For Thanksgiving Day (and remember this is a long way out) right now it looks mostly cloudy and a high near 44. A storm on the east coast may be impacting New England on Turkey Day and could even bring us a cool down as the day wears; so check back for updates. Have a great day!

Temperatures will warm into the upper 40s for the weekend with the morning lows near 30 both Saturday and Sunday and mostly to partly sunny skies. That’s a great forecast for this time of the year unless you’re a deer hunter and you want tracking snow. All indications are that we won’t see snow for the next 7 days. In Green Bay we have yet to see measurable snow (at least 0.1″) this season. The average date for the first measurable snowfall is today, November 13th.
Speaking of November 13th, it was 3 years ago today that I had to leave Good Day Wisconsin early to take my wife to the hospital. A few hours later our 3rd child Georgia Anne was born. Happy Birthday Georgia! Below is a picture of her from Saturday when we celebrated her birthday…when she got all her gifts. Although yesterday she turned to me when she saw something on TV she wanted and said, “Dada, I want that on my real birthday.” To which I replied, “maybe Santa will bring you that.”
