Cold weekend adds to impressively cold winter

Before the weekend started, we were approaching the top of one impressive list this winter.

And now that we’ve seen two more days this past weekend with below-zero readings, we’re almost up in the top three all-time on that list.

That list is the most number of days with below-zero readings in a single winter.

With this past weekend in the books, we’ve seen 44 days with a sub-zero temperature recorded.

One more day like that and we’ll enter a three-way tie for second. That will put us just three days shy of the all-time record, which was the winter 1976-1977.

But our temperatures are swinging the other way now, as Tuesday we’re going to reach 34. That would be our first time above freezing since January 13, a streak of 35 straight days.

That streak is the 9th longest on record in Green Bay, though still well off the record of 52 straight days set in 1979.
