Many Milwaukeeans are ticked about the chilly June temperatures. It’s a popular topic of discussion and many people claim it’s unusually cold for early-to-mid June. But is it? Have we just forgotten what it's like around here in late spring to early summer, or are we really having an unusually cold beginning of the season?
Sound-off, Milwaukee, about the city’s 50- and 60-degree start to summer.
Yes, it's normal. Milwaukeeans forget every year that we no longer have spring. The weather transitions from chilly to hot and humid practically overnight. The cool start to summer happens every year, and every year, people complain about it. Get over it, people. Soon it will be 90 degrees and you’ll complain about that.
No, this is not normal. In past years, we’ve had a few more warm days by now. The absolute lack of hot weather so far is not the norm. It’s OK to have a few cool days mixed in with warm days this time of year, but the absolute absence of high temps makes it seem like summer is never going to get here.
