Rain chances decrease making for a beautiful weekend ahead! -Erik Dean

Highs will be in the low to mid 80s for the weekend.

Good Morning everyone! After a soggy start to your Friday, the precipitation chances will dwindle down just in time for the drive home and the beginning of your weekend.


Here’s a look at SkyTracker and I went ahead and fast forwarded the clock to 1 PM. We’ll see a stray shower or 2 across the Coulee Region, which is why I kept the rain chances in the forecast at that time. By the time we roll into the evening hours, the rain chances are out of here making for a nice Friday evening.

We will stay in the 70s throughout the day with mostly cloudy skies by 4 PM. Then by 8 PM, we’ll see a little cloud cover with temperatures staying in the 70s

So once this high pressure swings on through later on, it will pave the way for a beautiful weekend with plenty of sunshine and highs in the low to mid 80s. The only Caveat is Sunday. I did put a chance of rain in the forecast, but that rain chance will be in the evening and overnight hours. I wouldn’t cancel your outdoor plans at all. It’s reflected on the 8-Day below, not the weekend forecast graphic as shown here.

After today, we have plenty of sunshine in the forecast. Our average high for this time of year is 86°, so we’ll be hovering around that temperature for a while. After Sunday Night and Monday, it’s smooth sailing ahead for Tuesday through Friday with plenty of sun and highs in the low to mid 80s.8 Day Am


Enjoy your Friday!
