Wisconsin Geography

The Central Wisconsin Plain is a flat, sandy lowland that was once the bottom of a glacial lake. In places on the plain there are hills and low (up to 370 meters above sea level) sandstone mesas. Very beautiful rock formations on the Wisconsin River in the Wisconsin Dells area.

The Western Uplands of Wisconsin is a hilly region indented by many rivers and streams. There are many caves, rock outcrops, ravines. Land not used for agriculture is covered with forests, mainly oak, maple and birch grow here.

This region is home to the very popular Wisconsin State Park “Devil’s Lake”. The picturesque lake that gave the park its name, bizarre rock formations and dense forests attract more than a million visitors every year.

In the southeast of the state is the Eastern Ranges and Valleys region. Around two hilly (up to three hundred meters above sea level) ridges stretching from north to south along the coast of Lake Michigan, almost flat plains stretch. Here is the largest lake in Wisconsin – Winnebago, whose area exceeds 550 km 2 (and in total there are more than fourteen thousand lakes in the state).

Many rivers flow through the lands of Wisconsin, the largest of which are the tributaries of the great Mississippi, the Wisconsin River (its length is about 700 km), Chippewa (about 300 km), Milwaukee (about 170 km). The Menominee River borders Wisconsin with Michigan, while the Santa Cruz and Mississippi Rivers border Minnesota and Iowa.

Almost half of the state of Wisconsin is covered with forests, mostly deciduous and mixed.

Wisconsin has a humid continental climate with large seasonal temperature variations and significant rainfall. Winters are usually cold, windy and snowy, summers are warm and humid. The proximity of the Great Lakes has a very strong influence on climatic conditions.

In the Milwaukee area, Wisconsin’s largest city, located on the shores of Lake Michigan, the average temperature in January ranges from -10°C to -2°C. In the hottest month, July, the temperature usually stays between 17°C and 27°C. The main amount of precipitation falls in the summer, although heavy snowfalls and blizzards are not something surprising in winter.

In the west of the state, around the city of Eau Claire, average January temperatures are from -15°C to -4°C, and July – from 16°C to 28°C.
