It felt more like May or June outside Tuesday.

This is not a normal November day in southeast Wisconsin. In fact, it was above normal by more than 20 degrees.

Conditions whetted an appetite for warm weather.

Jogging in downtown Milwaukee, Sean Butterfield said, “Running outside, just a shirt on, happy with that.”

The summer-like conditions were enough to inspire a corporate exercise class to venture outside, perhaps for the final time this year before winter lunges our way.

Wisconsin Athletic Club trainer Mike Lederer claims, “Normally we’re inside by the middle of October at the latest.  So this is working out great.  We’ll take it though.”

However, it's worth noting even some of the folks embracing today's temperature can't wait for the cold.

Jeff Kletzine can’t wait for the thermometer to take a turn downward, “I think it’s very unusual.  I’d rather be sledding or getting ready for winter sports to be honest with you.  It’s been warm enough, long enough for me.”
