April Begins With Record Warmth

Since Mar 21, here at OSNW3, March 2010 moved up the ladder two spots to finish as the 10th all-time warmest March on record. See complete rankings here. We stayed put in the precip/snow category as nothing fell since Mar 21. While the days moved from March to April the temperatures sky rocketed with the max temp on Apr 2 reaching 83.4 at OSNW3 breaking the all-time max temp record for Oshkosh that day by more than 4 degrees. The following day on Apr 3 the max temp rose to 76.7 at OSNW3 nearly tying the record of 77 for that day. Complete daily records for Oshkosh can be found here. Looking ahead the HPC has a relatively large QPF for our area this week. We may even hear a rumble of thunder.

New CoCoRaHS Station
I'd like to welcome the latest CoCoRaHS station in Brown County, Wisconsin to the network. WI-BN-6 is now up and recording. My Mother has joined and is excited to participate. She has already entered two observations. Welcome to the team, Mom! This area has a few weather related nicknames and as time moves forward and data becomes archived I'll be able to prove them out.

Front Of House
The grass is greening up along with the flowers, trees, and bushes all starting to bud. Spring is certainly in the air.
