STORY

The 2018 gun deer season was marked as one of the safest on record. For many areas across the state the nine day hunt came with some good weather conditions. Snow across far northern Wisconsin stuck around through much of the hunt thanks to lake effect snow showers off of Lake Superior. 

Here in Green Bay we only received 0.1” of snowfall throughout this hunting season which fell back on November 19th. Temperatures throughout the hunt remained seasonably cool mainly in the 20s and 30s with a few breezy days. We were able to hit 50 degrees for a high temperature on the 23rd. 

The average temperature through the hunt this year was 30° which ended a five year warming trend which began in 2013. Here is a list of the average temperatures and snowfall throughout the last 10 seasons in Green Bay.

2018    30.0°             0.1”

2017    35.1°             Trace
