Posted:

MILWAUKEE (WKOW)-- 2012 is on pace to be the warmest year on record for Wisconsin.

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

National Weather Service meteorologists say a low pressure system is expected to track north of Wisconsin Saturday and usher in warm winds from the south with temperatures forecast in the high 40s and maybe even 50s. Through November 24, the average temperature in Milwaukee was 54 degrees. It was 53.8 degrees for Madison.

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