Warmer weather on tap as summer begins

A rather cold and wet spring ended just after midnight, and Wisconsin can now look forward to some warmer and possibly drier weather.

Paul Collar with the National Weather Service in Sullivan says Wisconsin experienced a slightly more soggy spring than usual. As summer gets underway though, he says the heat is going to build in the coming days, with the long range forecast showing near or slightly above normal temperatures.

As for rain, Collar says the soggy weather seen during much of the spring should be on their way out. He says some showers and thunderstorms are in the forecast, but he expects normal precipitation or slightly drier conditions in the near future. Collar says this summer should be a sharp contrast to last year’s prolonged drought.
