8 To 8 Forecast Bill

Friday Forecast

Increasing clouds tonight and muggier, with lows in the mid-upper 60s. Many forecast models are showing the chance for a complex of showers and storms to race N/NW to S/SE across our area late tonight into Saturday morning. The timing would be after midnight and through mid to perhaps late morning Saturday. These storms could produce gusty winds, small hail and heavy downpours. The chance of rain may not reach the La Crosse area until after about 7 or 8 a.m. Saturday.

Another chance of storms Sunday and into Sunday night. Some of these storms could also be strong with gusty winds, hail and heavy rainfall. Highs on Sunday will climb into the mid-upper 80s and some spots could flirt with 90F if enough sunshine is seen.
