Observations by Gary Fewless for Green Bay WI (Lat.N 44.51° Long. W 88.02° ), except as noted. For flowers lacking conspicuous petals or sepals I define "anthesis" as release of pollen by mature anthers.

December 2005

Dec 25 This is the fourth consecutive day that the high temperature exceeded 32 F and there is considerable melting of the snow. The forecast is for temps around the freezing point or a little above with little change for the next several days. Fog has been a problem in the Green Bay area for the last several days and with temperatures varying around the freezing point there have been some very slippery roads.
Dec 18 The low temperature was - 8 F this morning in Green Bay, the lowest so far this winter.
Dec 14 Green Bay received 4.7 inches of snow today.
Dec 10 Green Bay received 1.0 inch of snow today.
Dec 08 This is the fourth consecutive day with low temperatures below zero---3 F today.
Dec 06 Green Bay reached a morning low of - 3 F. I don't care what the calendar says, this feels like winter.
Dec 05 Green Bay reached its lowest temperature of the season at -1 F this morning. There is general ice cover on the lower bay.
