FIRST ALERT FORECAST: A quick shower or two isn’t out of the question this evening.

Humidity stays relatively low the next couple of days.

WOW! What a gorgeous day across the Coulee Region. We had temperatures in the 70s & 80s with plenty of sunshine. For the most part we can hit “copy & paste” and that’s the story for tomorrow. This evening and going into the overnight hours, lingering thunderstorms will be in the mix. They will be widely scattered in general. The majority of us won’t even see a single drop. If you do, it’ll last for a few minutes and then it’ll be out of your area.

Evening Out
So that’s why I am keeping the shower chance in the forecast. Again our best chance will be in the late evening/overnight hours in La Crosse if we even see it. It’ll definitely be of the popcorn variety when it sweeps through.




8 Day Pm

So there’s Wednesday where we have highs in the Low – Mid 80s. In terms of temperatures, That trend will continue right through the weekend. The only caveat is that starting Thursday evening and going into Sunday evening, we have those thunderstorm chances in the forecast. I would definitely make sure you have the News8000 First Alert Weather App on your mobile device and check the radar frequently to see if any thunderstorms are heading your way.

Enjoy your evening!
