Summer weather returns to central Wisconsin


Although students head back to class in a few weeks, summer weather has returned.

While many people said the change has come a little late, they're still finding ways to enjoy it.

The sun is out and the temperatures finally feel like summer.

"We're going to make the most out of it and probably go to the pool," said Heidi Mohr.

Heidi Mohr and her family spent Saturday morning at the Wausau Farmer's Market.

"It's been a little different this summer, definitely, pleasant in some ways, but cool in others, especially if you want to swim," said Mohr.

Just across town, families were ready to jump into the water at Wausau's Kaiser Pool.

"My daughter, she's eight, she's been dying to go swimming all year, almost," said Ronald Sparks.

Sparks and his family finally got another chance to dive in.

"Any time the sun comes out and it's above 75, it's like let's go," said Sparks.

Lifeguards at the Kaiser Pool said they've noticed the difference.

"When it dips below 70, we usually don't have a ton of people coming in, it's usually pretty slow," said Kacie Gibbs, Pool Supervisor.

But they said summer's return is a little late. The Kaiser Pool closes up for the season this weekend.

"It's unfortunate, but you deal with what you get," said Gibbs.

Our Storm Track 9 meteorologists said this summer has been abnormal.

In the last 26 days, central Wisconsin saw 22 days with highs in the 60's and 70's and just 4 days with highs at 80 or above.

Not to forget, this season's record-breaking cold high temperatures in the 60's.

"It's been more of a spring and fall and a week of summer in between somewhere," said Sparks.

But meteorologists said the trend has passed and the 80's are back for at least the next 10 days.

If you'd like to enjoy one last swim at Wausau's Kaiser Pool this season, lifeguards said the pool will be open tomorrow 1 to 4:30 tomorrow.
