Summary: Very Cold with light ENE winds.

Wind: Local conditions are Light.
Ice & Snow Report: Water season on Lake Winnebago is over!  We had some great days this fall with FOUR 4.0m days which is much more than the typical 1 or 2.  Ice is now forming.  Miller's Bay in Oshkosh has good ice for sailing as some local sailors have been out for about 10 days.  Most areas are not safe yet. Check out the MODIS satellite images.  (updated: Nov. 29, 2 pm)
If you go out, be careful as early season conditions can vary greatly. Have your ice picks!

Tabular Data for Thursday Jan 17th, 2019

A summary of Today's observations are shown in the table below. All measured values are time averages over the 15 minute interval, except wind gusts which by definition are a maximum value. Windsock ratings of 2 or higher are indicated. Observations during daylight hours are shown with light green background for date and time cells. This table is updated every time any graph is updated. Also, clicking a data row will toggle highlighting on/off for easy reference.

The Weather Center records observations every minute (1,440 minutes per day) and that set of data is 'thinned' down to a reasonable number of data points (96 using a 15 minute interval) without sacrificing much data integrity. You can learn more about the system, data and database on the information and sensor pages.
