Accuweather/Beach forecast


Hi, Dave.  How do you do?  Could you tell me where I may discover beach forecasts for my zip code area, 54235, Dave?  I want to know the earliest week that I swim with fair-temperature waters, Dave.

Hi Nick,

Check out the following website:

It has lots of information on it for the Great Lakes region.

While the air temperatures in your area can sometimes be warm enough to swim by late May or early June, it often takes about a month longer before the water has warmed to a comfortable level. Sometimes, the lag is even more than that.

I hope this helped!
