Wisconsin weather warming up; gardening OK as freeze unlikely; no swim

The weather forecast for Wisconsin over the next two weeks calls for highs in the low 70s and lows in the mid-50s. Which begs the question: Is the nice weather here to stay?

“I mean this is still Wisconsin, so there are no promises in that area,” said Marcia Cronce, meteorologist with the National Weather Service, but she added “we’re seeing kind of a general warming trend.”

The National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center looks at extended models and global patterns, and its three-month outlook has Wisconsin listed as a 33% to 40% probability of above-average temperatures. 

The three- to four-week outlook has Wisconsin at above 50% probability of above-average temperatures. The eight- to 14-day outlook also has Wisconsin at 50% probability of above-average temperatures, according to the National Weather Service.
