Mild December comes to a close

This December wasn’t one most north central Wisconsinites wanted. After two straight months of well below normal temperatures in October and November, December was well above normal for most of the month. In fact, 24 days this month were above normal, which was more than October and November combined. We also had highs rise above […]

Given all the wet weather recently, it might be hard to remember the last time we had a significant dry spell or drought around North-Central Wisconsin. The most recent severe drought occurred in the southern half of the area in 2012. A longer term dry spell occurred in the previous decade. The drought-like conditions were […]

January Recap & Record Tracking

Looking back on January of 2016, it was certainly a wintry month, even though there was not much snowfall. The snow mainly came in little bits and didn’t even add up to 6 inches in Wausau. For fans of winter, it was still decent though, because the heavy snow that fell in late December stuck […]

August 2015 Review

August of 2015 was rather unremarkable in the context of what is normal. It was both a little below normal on temperature and precipitation (in Wausau). Thankfully the precipitation was only about a half-inch below normal and it came at just the right times and in the right amounts to make for a good (near) end of […]

July 2014, A little deja-vu

What do you remember about July of 2014? Perhaps it was remarkable how the weather stayed a bit on the cool and pleasant side. There were hardly any days with high heat or humidity. Partly because of the cooler trend, there was not much in the way of severe weather. The rash of warnings that […]

Time to look back on another cold month. It seems we have been saying that quite a lot lately. March of 2014 will go down in the record books as one of the top ten coldest, but it will not go in the record books for snowfall. March of 2014 was closer to making the […]

March turned out to be an interesting month in that everyone was amazed at how cold it was and how long the snow lasted, yet it turns out it wasn’t a record-breaker. We did not set any new records for cold temps and the month did not even land in the top 25 of coldest March’s […]
