ASHWAUBENON - Starting at 6:02 on Wednesday morning, spring had officially spring in Northeast Wisconsin.
But it could have fooled us. High temperatures barely eclipsed 20 degrees, even colder than what we can expect in January.
And if you can't remember the last time it's been this cold to start spring, there's a good reason for that. It's been a while.
The coldest start to spring in the past 10 years was in 2006, when we topped out at 33 degrees.
To find a temperature that was even in the 20s, you have to go all the way back to 1988…25 springs ago, when we topped out at 23 degrees.
But although you can't see it, there are some signs that spring could be closer than we think, at least for seasonal allergy sufferers.
"I didn't expect to see anything except frozen fingertips from collecting the slides, but we found some mold spores. It's not at a level that will induce an asthma attack or sinus headache, but for those people watching that have hay fever and sinus and asthma, you better get your medications refilled," said Dr. Steve Kagen, allergy and asthma specialist.
And even though our trees aren't close to budding, they are budding to our south.
So any time we see southerly winds, tree pollen could find its way to Northeast Wisconsin.
The snow could also come back to bite us as well.
Dr. Kagen says the wet winter could make for a particularly bad tree pollen season.
Kagen says he expects the first peak to be birch pollen in mid-April.
