Low temperatures this morning dipped down into the single digits this morning, with wind chill values ranging from -10 to -20 degrees. It was a truly frigid way to start the month.
Thankfully, the lows this morning weren’t anywhere near record values. Green Bay’s low of 5 degrees was still a full 15 degrees above the record of -11, set back in 1893.
But the cold weather wasn’t anything we haven’t become accustomed to over the course of this November, which just concluded on Sunday. It was a little bit closer to re-writing some record books.
Green Bay ended up with the 5th-coldest November on record with an average of 28.5 degrees over the course of the month. It’s about 6 degrees cooler than usual.
Thankfully it was still a few degrees warmer than the coldest November on record, which was in 1951.
And the one bit of good news about this cold snap today to start December is that it doesn’t look to continue for much longer. Temperatures should rebound to near 30 for Tuesday, and by this weekend we could be seeing highs back up into the 30s.
