Warmer trend continues in Wisconsin


It has been a warmer than normal winter for Wisconsin.

The USDA says the average statewide temperature was more than 12 degrees warmer than usual, quickly melting the snow that did fall during the month, while overall precipitation was about a half an inch below normal.

That lack of snow cover and swings in temperature do have some farmers concerned about possible freeze damage to overwintering crops.

Maple sap is running ahead of schedule and field work could get an early start to the season in parts of the state.
