As we finally pull out of this winter's deep-freeze, memories drift back to the record-setting warmth of March 2012.
As we finally pull out of this winter's deep-freeze, memories drift back to the record-setting warmth of March 2012.

Summer started early in Milwaukee in 2012

It was about this time in 2012 that spring began.

Heck, summer began.

Do you remember?

From March 11 to  22 in 2012, Milwaukee had one day in the 50s, three days in the 60s, six days in the 70s, and two days in the 80s.

I remember. I was flat on my back in bed with the flu on those two days in the 80s.

It began on March 11 when Milwaukee set a record high by reaching 66 degrees. We followed that up with 60 on March 12 and 66 on March 13, and we were just getting started.

We set back-to-back record-highs on March 14 and 15 by hitting 78 and 72, respectively. A one-day cool-down to 58 followed on March 16, before we returned to the 70s for a three-day stretch, March 17-19. (Do you remember how warm St. Patrick’s Day was?) March 18 was another record-setter, as we topped-off at 79.

The peak of the warmth was on March 20 and 21. On the 20th we set a record by hitting 83, and then bested that by setting a record by hitting 84 on the 21st. That 84-degree reading stands as the warmest temperature on record in Milwaukee in March.
