Mild temps, rain keeping winter recreation plans on ice

Mother Nature has not done you any favors if you are a fan of winter recreation in Door and Kewaunee counties. According to the Weather Underground, there have only been a few days in 2023 when the day's high temperature stayed below 32 degrees. This week, daytime high temperatures have been about 10 degrees above normal. The recent rains have washed away much of the snow that is still around. Snowmobile trails in Door and Kewaunee counties have yet to be able to open this year, and Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay only received a few days of good cross-country skiing following Christmas. The Teresa K. Hilander Community Ice Rink in Sister Bay has not been able to allow skating since before December 28th due to the lack of ice. Kewaunee County's Winter Park is one of the few places able to hold seasonal fun at this time. The snow machine has been a saving grace, but even Kewaunee County Promotions and Recreation Director Dave Myers says a little help from the weather would be nice.

According to the National Weather Service, you might have to wait a while before enjoying the area as a winter wonderland. Daytime highs will only be at freezing temperatures once over the next seven days in some parts of Door and Kewaunee counties. To make matters worse, rain is expected to sprinkle in and out of the area over the weekend.
