National Weather Service explains weird weather


GREEN BAY (WAOW) -- The volatile weather we've had this spring is certainly out of the ordinary.

Gary Austin, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Green Bay, said it's due to unusual temperatures all around the country.

"There's a large contrast in below normal temperatures across the northern part of the country, and above normal temperatures in the southern part of the country," said Austin. "Where those two clash or meet is where there's a strong jet stream."

The National Weather Service reports temperatures should stay below normal for the next few weeks, and that could mean more severe weather to come.
