When Is The Warm Up?

I'm get tired of an occasional 60° day and am looking forward to when we can string several of them together with some occasional 70° days. Looks like we will have to be patient though.


Here are some benchmark dates for warmer temperatures to come:


April 17th is the first day when we start to have an average high temperature of 60°.

May 15th is the first day when we start to have an average high temperature of 70°.

June 15th is the first day when we start to have an average high temperature of 80°.


These are averages and it is very likely there will see several days before each benchmark date where when temperatures climb above those averages. Just how many days and how warm we get are tough to call.


The latest long range forecast from the Climate Prediction Center holds out hope for a warmer than average overall end of spring and start to summer. The outlook for both the April through May and May through July period has nearly the entire country favored for above average temperatures overall.


In the short term the best we can hope for is getting close to 60° on Thursday and climbing into the lower 60s on Friday. The best news of all is that the only threat of rain this week is late Friday into early Saturday.

Here is my 7 day forecast:


Monday: Partly to mostly cloudy, breezy High: 48 (45 Lakefront)


Tuesday: Mostly cloudy, cooler Low: 34 High: 44


Wednesday: Partly to mostly sunny Low: 34 High: 51 (46 Lakefront)


Thursday: Partly to mostly sunny Low: 35 High: 59 (52 Lakefront)


Friday: Partly to mostly cloudy, rain late Low: 44 High: 62


Saturday: Rain possible early then partly cloudy Low: 42 High: 55


Sunday: Partly to mostly sunny Low: 39 High: 57 (54 Lakefront)
