WISCONSIN WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MILWAUKEE/SULLIVAN WI
236 AM CST Sat Feb 18 2017
It was a sunny and abnormally mild February day in Wisconsin on
Friday. A record high temperature of 64 was set in Milwaukee and the
record high temperature of 52 for this date was tied in Green Bay.
High temperatures Friday ranged from 42 at Sturgeon Bay and
Manitowoc, near the cold waters of Lake Michigan, to 65 at Boscobel
and Kenosha. Temperatures even reached the 50s in the snow covered
areas of northern Wisconsin. These temperatures are 25 to 30 degrees
above normal for the middle of February.
Winds were southerly 5 to 15 miles an hour.
Mostly clear skies prevailed, with early morning temperatures
ranging from the upper 20s in the northeast to the lower 50s in
the far southeast.
Look for unseasonably mild temperatures to continue into next
week, with temperatures reaching levels more typical of early
April than mid to late February. Highs during this period will be
mostly in the 50s, although some spots may climb into the lower
60s. Temperatures will be a bit cooler along the Lakeshore.
Dry weather is expected through the weekend, with our next chance
of precipitation arriving on Monday into Tuesday. The
precipitation should be of the liquid variety, owing to the very
warm temperatures across the state. Mild temperatures will
continue into late week.
