It is quite unusual for Wisconsin to be sunny and warm at this time of the year, yet high temperatures are expected to last throughout the weekend.
Mark Baden, chief meteorologist for WISN-12, said Nov. 5 was the third day in a row with temperatures 70 degrees or higher in November, which tied a record set back in 2008.
He said Wisconsin should see highs around 70 degrees from now through Sunday.
It’s a record breaking day. Record high. Record number of consecutive 70s. Record tying number of 70° days in November. We are just 3 degrees away from all-time November record high. GET OUTSIDE! pic.twitter.com/XU05AlDM3S

“This would be the warmest stretch of November weather in our recorded history,” Baden said in an email to Milwaukee Magazine. “Enjoy it while we can.”
He said these weather records go back to 1871.
Take advantage of the extra sun and spend some time outside this weekend!
