GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) By now -- most of us should be pretty use to our rollercoaster winter. However that doesn't mean we have to like it. Our high temperature hit 27 today in Green Bay.
But guess what? Mother Nature couldn't even let us enjoy one relatively warm day, without throwing a curve ball. Something she has been doing all winter.
If you need proof this has been an odd winter - consider a recent temperature taken in the vicinity of the Arctic Circle.
"A couple days ago they were 61degrees in Alaska - in January," said National Weather Service Meteorologist, Roy Eckberg.
Eckberg says it is just one of those winters. Yet for those keeping score it has been the coldest in two decades.
"From December 15 to now it's been the ninth coldest period on record," Eckberg said.
Thursday morning we all enjoyed a break as the mercury climbed into the 20's -
Then at noon yet more snow fell- making roads slick and in some case - a bit treacherous.
"For the month of January we are 5 inches above normal and for the season 15 inches above normal for snowfall,"Eckberg said.
But at least for this woman, it was a break from bitter cold - some 30 days in all of sub-zero temperatures.
"I'll take it any day over that and as long as we can all keep up with the snow and it gives us a nice fresh coat over the dirty stuff I don't see anything wrong with it," said Diane Spaak.
