Dry and Pleasant First Half Of The Week

Forecast High Monday: 67F / Low Tonight: 48F – Last updated Monday, October 7, 2019 at 8:50 AM…

RIVER FLOOD WARNINGS remains in effect until further notice for the Kickapoo River at Steuben, the Yellow River at Necedah and the Mississippi River at Wabasha. Minor flooding is expected in all locations. In addition, the Mississippi River could approach flood stage in La Crosse later this week.

After a cool and wet Saturday, Sunday was a much needed dry day with lots of sunshine. Highs were mainly in the 60s, but the La Crosse airport briefly reached 70F.

This week will start dry and pleasant with highs today in the 60s and lots of sunshine. Clear and seasonably cool tonight with lows in the 40s, but upper 30s possible north and east.

Mostly sunny and mild Tuesday with highs in the upper 60s to around 70F. Another nice and mild day Wednesday with highs around 70F, under partly cloudy skies.

Looking Ahead… A strong cold front approaches from the west Thursday with increasing clouds and a chance of rain showers and isolated t-storms by afternoon. Temps will still be mild Thursday with highs in the mid-upper 60s.

Breezy and cooler Friday with periods of rain likely. High temps will likely be set early in the mid 50s, then temps will fall during the afternoon.

Windy and sharply colder Friday night through the weekend. Highs Saturday and Sunday will only be in the mid 40s, with lows Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights in the low-mid 30s. Any rain showers lingering through the weekend could mix with snow showers, especially at night. It’s too early to say for certain if we would see any snow accumulations in our area, but for now it looks like little if any accumulations would occur. The better chance for snow accumulations will be well to our north and west. Frost and freezing temps look likely for our area, which could end the growing season, so plan accordingly.

Next Monday and Tuesday look dry at this point with high temps back in the low 50s.

In the meantime, enjoy our dry and pleasant weather! -Bill Graul
