Cool temperatures spark second day of new record lows


Unseasonably cold air sparked a second consecutive day of record-breaking temperatures in Wisconsin.

According to the National Weather Service, Sunday morning's low temperature in Wausau was 47 degrees. That broke the previous record low temperature for July 28 of 48 degrees last observed 79 years ago in 1934.

Sunday afternoon also saw new records in the form of daytime temperatures. Rhinelander only warmed to 59 degrees on Sunday, making that the lowest maximum daytime temperature in the city's history for the date. The previous record of 62 degrees had stood since 1991.

In Langlade County, Antigo tied its record for the lowest maximum daytime temperature of 61 degrees, last observed in 1991 as well.

Stevens Point had a second consecutive day of record low daytime temperatures on Sunday. July 28 saw a high of just 65 degrees, besting the previous record of 67 degrees from 1981.

Typical daytime high temperatures in late July are near 80 degrees for most of central Wisconsin.

Additional cities observing new record low maximum temperatures on Sunday includes Appleton, Green Bay, Oshkosh and Sturgeon Bay.

Sunday's cool temperatures came just a day after another round of temperature records had been broken on Saturday. New record low maximum temperatures were observed on July 27 in Wausau, Wisconsin Rapids, Marshfield, Stevens Point, Antigo, Rhinelander, Appleton, Green Bay, Manitowoc, Oshkosh and Sturgeon Bay.
