The climate of Milwaukee (Wisconsin - United States of America)
Milwaukee is the largest city in the state of Wisconsin and is located in the southeastern part of the state on Lake Michigan. Milwaukee is located in Milwaukee County of which it also is the capital. The city was founded during the second part of the 19th century. During this period mainly German immigrants settled here. Nowadays the city has a population figure of more than 1 million while the urban area is home to more than 2 million people. Because the city is located on Lake Michigan many water sports enthusiasts travel here every year. Several annual festivals are held here. The Miller Brewing Company brewery is based here. This brewery opened its doors in 1855.
Milwaukee has a moderate continental climate slightly influenced by Lake Michigan. Because of this influence temperatures are slightly higher here during the winter. However, it is still cold during the winter with temperatures far below freezing point. Precipitation is quite evenly spread out over the year with a peak during summer. During the winter most precipitation falls in the form of sleet or snow.
