Seasonal weather in Wisconsin

Wisconsin has 4 distinct seasons, with warm summers and freezing winters. In the summer, temperatures can hit the high-70s, but there are often short showers and thunderstorms.

Winters soon fall below freezing, especially close to Lake Michigan, so there's a threat of snow between November and March. This is good news for skiers, with plenty of snow on the slopes during the spring.
