Streak of 11 Months With Above Normal Temps Halted With September 2012

Slightly cooler than normal temperatures in September, 2012, across most of Wisconsin resulted in the end of an 11-month run of above normal temperatures for much of eastern and southern Wisconsin. 

For Milwaukee and Madison the 11-month streak ran from October, 2011, through September, 2012.  The record for consecutive months above normal for Madison and Milwaukee is 20 months during the period from December 1997 to July 1999. 

Temperatures during the month of September 2012 were up and down as several weather systems moved across the state followed by high pressures with cool air.  In the end the average monthly temperature for much of the state was 0.5 to 2.0 degrees below normal.
