Milwaukee Climate & Weather
Milwaukee Climate and Weather
Milwaukee has a humid continental climate. Summers are warm and pleasant, though thunderstorms can be frequent. Winters are quite cold, and snow is common and plentiful throughout the season. Due to its proximity to Lake Michigan, Milwaukee experiences 'lake-effect' conditions. In the summer, areas along the lakeshore are often comparatively cooler than inland, and in the winter, they are slightly warmer. Tornado season is from March to June, and the wettest month of the year is August.
