Isolated Showers or Light Mix in Spots This Evening, Chilly Overnight -Bill Graul
Chance of More Light Rain & Snow Showers Friday
Tonight’s Forecast Low: 34F / Friday’s Forecast High: 47F…
Some areas saw some light snow this morning, mainly across higher terrain and ridge tops. See the stats below on when we typically see the first flakes of the season in the La Crosse area.
Chance of light rain showers or sprinkles in spots this evening, especially east. There could even be some graupel or ice pellets in spots. Otherwise, expect mostly cloudy and chilly conditions overnight with lows ranging from the low-mid 20s (north/east) to low-mid 30s in the La Crosse area.
Another disturbance will rotate southeast across the region on Friday, bringing the chance for more light rain and snow showers. The greatest chance for precipitation on Friday will be in northern parts of the viewing area, where there could be a light coating of snow across higher terrain and ridge tops.
Otherwise, it will be mainly cloudy and chilly with highs Friday in the 40s for most. Far southern portions of the viewing area could flirt with 50F, while parts of Clark County may not even reach 40F. A touch warmer Saturday with partly to mostly cloudy skies and highs in the low 50s. Breezy with isolated showers possible Sunday, with cool highs in the mid-upper 40s.
Looking Ahead… Unseasonably cool temps continue to start next week, with highs only in the 40s Monday and Tuesday. Overnight lows will be in the 20s for most Monday and Tuesday nights, perhaps in the teens in traditional colder spots north/east. Highs creep back into the 50s for the second half of the week, with a slight chance of showers Friday. Keep in mind the average high this time of year in La Crosse is in the low 60s, with the average low in the low 40s.
Have a good Thursday night! -Meteorologist Bill Graul
