June 1, 2019 Wedding Milwaukee WI

Weather prediction for June 1, 2019 in Milwaukee WI.

Beware The Mist on the Hilltops

Kyle my friend, remember the old proverb that hath been writ by the Algonquin Tribe who's spirits govern your lands: "When the mist comes from the hill, good weather it doth spill; when the mist comes from the sea, good fisherman your fair luck may be; but cast the rods of plague and doubt, when hilltops cry and from them shout; the rains they come and rains shall fall, on the first of june every year, each and all."

Hope this helps!

Polar Vortex

These extreme weather occurrences are the result of climate change. A hotter earth means more extreme weather, precipitation, temperatures, and effects on the jet stream pushing polar air down to latitudes not accustomed to the extreme cold.

I think you got in wrong for

I think you got in wrong for this time in Ohio. We are having record breaking well below normal highs and lows. Three days this week overnight temps -50° with wind chill. We are breaking records of coldest EVER!!!

Carolyn is a complainer

Carolyn, you are a typical complainer. How about you READ the sentence “The coldest periods will be in mid- and late December, early and late January, and early February.” That’s exactly what’s happening. It’s COLD. The prediction is based on AVERAGES. Stop complaining and get over it. PS it’s -60 in Chicago, am I complaining? No. You are such a troll.
