Effects of Sandy to remain strong Wednesday
WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy, windy, and cool. High: 47 Video by tmj4.comvideo
MILWAUKEE - The winds around post tropical cyclone Sandy continue to diminish but will still be strong today across eastern Wisconsin.
The clouds from the massive eastern storm will be around at times but there will be some thinning and by tomorrow we should see plenty of sunshine.
The cool pattern that ended this month will continue right into the month of November.
The next opportunity for any precipitation comes on the weekend, but the chances are small at this time for Milwaukee.
October for Milwaukee will go down in the record books as a cool and wet month.
This will be the second straight month of below normal temperatures after eleven consecutive months of above normal temperatures.
October started out warmer with high temperatures mainly in the sixties and seventies until mid-month, and then the pattern shifted to mainly fifties and forties for maximums.
The warmest temperature was set on the 4th when the thermometer almost hit eighty with seventy-nine degrees.
The coldest temperature was thirty-two degrees set on Saturday morning the 27th.
Total precipitation was 2.91 inches which was about a quarter inch above normal for the month, and while there were a few flurries around this weekend there was no sighting at the airport.
Overcast skies made up a nearly a third of the month with nine cloudy days.
