It was a beautiful day yesterday with highs in the area near the 70 degree mark…even along the lake.
This was the first time for almost a week that the high temperature was above normal. The normal high for yesterday was 70. Today’s normal high is 69 and we will be about 10 degrees below that as colder air filters into the area. But just remember, at least for one day we were above normal!

We set records for the coldest high temperatures yesterday in many locations. These temperatures were well below the normal high of 72 for this time of year. In fact it’s more like weather for the end of October!
We could set more records today as temperatures will be cool once again. The good news is that the sunshine will come out tomorrow and after a frosty start, we’ll warm a bit for the weekend.

It’s cold! So cold we may set some records. The forecast high today is 56 and if we get that in Green Bay, we will tie a record for lowest maximum on this date. It was set in 2006. Other locations may also set or tie records.
Tomorrow’s high will be even a bit cooler but the record for that date is 52 set in 1902. I think that will stand. There is a chance for frost Friday and Saturday morning as well, mainly to our north. At least things warm into the 60s for the weekend.

Cool! Appleton set a new record low for July 3rd with 46 degrees! The normal low is 58. It was cool all over northeast Wisconsin.
It’ll warm into the mid 70s today and will be a great night for the fireworks in Appleton, Shawano and other locations. Great for tomorrow’s Fire Over the Fox in Green Bay too.
Expect lots of sunshine and low humidity for the Fourth of July events. If you’re running in the Firecracker 5K in Kaukauna tomorrow morning at 8am, temperature will be near 61 degrees with sunny skies. The high will reach into the mid to upper 70s.
Hurricane Arthur is churning up the east coast and will impact the outer banks of North Carolina tonight into tomorrow morning as a category 1 or 2 hurricane. Wind speeds of 85 mph are possible but it looks like it will not make landfall. Next up for Arthur as it moves to the north is a glancing blow to New England Friday night.

Have a fantastic and safe Fourth of July weekend!

Strong or severe thunderstorms are possible today but the best chance will be this evening and into tonight. At 8 am most of the state is under a “slight” risk of severe weather with the main threats being large hail and damaging wind. The storms will diminish after midnight. Notice in the map below that parts of Iowa and Minnesota are under a “moderate” threat. Thunderstorms are expected to develop in this area this afternoon and move northeast this evening and tonight into our area.
Things will heat up today with temperatures pushing into the 70s…the first time since October 12th of last year. That’s more than six months!
Temperatures will continue above normal for the next few days and it is looking good for the weekend with mostly sunny skies on Saturday and a chance of showers in the afternoon on Mother’s Day Sunday.

Another record to show just how cold it has been this winter may have fallen (it’ll be a record with an asterisk at this point). Last night (Wednesday) in Green Bay the temperature dropped to -11° shortly before midnight. Then at 3:30 am this morning the temperature plummeted to -15°. The official numbers aren’t in yet from the National Weather Service but that if it holds that would propel us into the number one spot for number of days below -10. Even if that isn’t the case, the record has at least been tied. The record for most days below zero keeps growing with another 2 days added because of the negative numbers reached yesterday and this morning. This may be the final hurrah as warmer weather moves in and sticks around for the next 7 days. So yes it has been cold and; most of us want it to end but at least we have the distinction of making it through one of the coldest winters on record! Feel proud!
