We wake up to a chilly morning again today with a 7 am temperature in Green Bay of 31 degrees, the coldest of the season so far, but temperatures will rise to the mid 50s with lots of sunshine. Yesterday’s high was 58 in Green Bay and a low of 33. If you’re heading to High School football this evening, the Gametime temperature will be near 46 and by the end of the game, 42 degrees. Brrr…but beautiful for Friday night football. The weekend looks fantastic too with mostly sunny to partly sunny skies and highs in the 50s.
It was a chilly morning Thursday with temperatures reaching their lowest so far this season in Green Bay at 33°. It was 27° in Oconto! It’ll be another cold one tomorrow morning and a frost advisory is in effect from 1 am to 8 am for the central and southern part of our viewing area. Cover those plants or bring them inside if you want to save them.
Winds were really blowing yesterday with peak wind gusts near 40 mph in many locations. Today will be less windy with sustained winds of 10 to 15 mph this afternoon out of the west/northwest. Make sure the kids are bundled up for school as we have a frosty start to the morning.
The normal high for today is 60° but temperatures will only top out in the low to mid 50s through the weekend. We’ll see lots of sunshine though!
There’s no lunar eclipse this morning, although the moon was certainly bright last night. Did you see the great pictures we got from viewers of the eclipse from yesterday morning? Check it out in our photo gallery.
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!
