MILWAUKEE- The dry and quiet pattern continues today with variable clouds across southern Wisconsin and warming temperatures. The high temperature in Milwaukee should reach fifty degrees today, which is four degrees above the normal high of forty-six degrees.
Temperatures over the next few days including the weekend and early next week will be at or above normal through the period. There is no precipitation in the forecast until the chance for a few light rain showers on Tuesday.
We have made it to the mid-point of November, and at the moment this month has been colder than normal and drier than normal in Milwaukee. Milwaukee has received only a quarter of an inch of precipitation, which is about an inch below normal for the month to date. The average monthly temperature is running about three degrees below normal also, even though we experienced two days in the sixties last weekend.
If this month continues on this trend until the 30th, it will be the third month in a row with below normal temperatures. September and October both ended with below normal monthly average temperatures, the first time in almost a year that trend was experienced. The previous eleven months starting in September of 2011 and ending in September of this year were all above normal for temperatures.
