Port Washington, WI Weather

During the summer, weather forecasters often say, “Cooler near the lake.” However, during winter it changes to, “Warmer near the lake.”


“Why is that?” you may ask.

Large bodies of water tend to act as an energy flywheel, collecting heat in hot weather and giving it back to the atmosphere when the temperature dips toward freezing or beyond. Because the lake moderates temperature extremes, you are likely to find that your heating and cooling costs are, on average, less than your neighbors to the west. At times the temperature differences can be dramatic.
