Wisconsin Weather Update for April 23, 2012.

By: HaleStorm , 12:47 PM GMT on April 23, 2012

March 2012 > April 2012?

In terms of average temperatures, that odd equation is looking true! If the current forecast holds up, our average March temperatures will be warmer than our average April temperatures! If you’re curious how rare this is, it’s only happened one other time, in 1907. In other news, cats are playing with dogs, kids are excited about cleaning their rooms, and breakfast will be served for dinner.

Pleasantly Spring

The nice weather from this weekend is going to continue into the work week thanks to a large area of high pressure centered in Nebraska. We may stay just a few degrees below normal today, but overall I think it’s going to be a nice day to be outside. We warm up a bit tomorrow and Wednesday ahead of the next storm system, with rain entering the forecast by Wednesday. But while we enjoy another pleasant Spring day in Wisconsin, folks in the northeastern U.S. are dealing with a rain changing over to snow event and a large area several states wide are being forced to get out their snowblowers today!
