Just two days after Wisconsin had record warmth, the mercury failed to get above freezing in La Crosse yesterday for the first time this season. The city reported a high of 29 – the earliest day for a sub-freezing high in the last nine years. And it was quite a contrast from Saturday, when Eau Claire broke a 103-year-old heat record with a high of 67.
Normally, La Crosse doesn’t get its first full day below freezing until November 18th. And it was still colder this morning than what we’re accustomed to. Sparta was the state’s cold spot at 7 a-m with 12 degrees, and it was 13 at Camp Douglas.
Forecasters say the mercury might not get above freezing today in much of north central Wisconsin. But a slight warm-up is expected tomorrow, with highs in the 40’s predicted statewide for the rest of the week. That’s a little above normal for this time of year. Flurries or light freezing drizzle is possible tonight in far northwest Wisconsin. But otherwise, there’s not a drop or a flake of precipitation in the forecast at least through the weekend.
