BayCare Clinic Century: Good weather ahead
Thursday, March 9, 2017
For cyclists, the toughest part of Wisconsin winters is not being able to ride outside.
Oh, to be sure, some do. They get all bundled up and brave the cold and the wind.
Most, however, resign themselves to waiting for warmer weather. That likely includes those planning to ride in the BayCare Clinic Century Bayshore to Lakeshore tour on Saturday, June 3.
Warmer weather is coming, according to Jeff Last of the National Weather Service office in Ashwaubenon.
“The spring outlook for northeast Wisconsin indicates temperatures will be typical of the time of year,” Last says of what’s expected from March to May. However, he adds, precipitation may trend above normal.
So what, exactly, are typical temperatures for this area?
“High temperatures in the 40s begin to regularly occur in Green Bay by mid-March.” Last says.
“By the second week of April, highs often reach 50 or greater. The 60s begin to show up on the thermometer by the end of that month,” he says.
“In May, average high temperatures start out in the lower 60s and reach the 70s just a few weeks later.”
The ride is sponsored by the BayCare Clinic Foundation and is part of the BayCare Clinic Bikes fitness and wellness initiative. BayCare Clinic Bikes promotes bicycling as a healthy, family-friendly activity. Efforts are aimed toward increasing bicycling and advocating for bicycling safety throughout northeastern Wisconsin.
All proceeds from the ride will go to the BayCare Clinic Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization which supports causes and organizations that promote improved health and livelihood in northeastern Wisconsin.
