2012 could be Wisconsin's warmest year

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Wisconsin is on pace to be the hottest year on record.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel also reports the forecast for the first few weeks of December likely will mean snowplow drivers in southern Wisconsin won't have much snow to move.

National Weather Service meteorologist Mark Gehring says a low pressure system is expected to track north of Wisconsin by Saturday and usher in warm winds from the south with temperatures forecast in the high 40s and maybe even 50s.

Through Nov. 24, the average temperature in Milwaukee was 54 degrees. It was 53.8 degrees for Madison.

The current record-holding year is 1931. Through Nov. 24 of that year, the average temperature in Madison was 53.1 degrees and 53.8 degrees in Milwaukee.
