Fire Weather Planning Forecast
National Weather Service La Crosse WI
132 PM CST Sun Feb 19 2017

...A Wet Monday Is Expected...

.DISCUSSION...A storm system will move across the Upper Midwest
Monday and Monday night. This is expected to bring rain to most
locations and there could also be a few thunderstorms as well.
Temperatures will not cool much behind this system with well above
normal readings expected for the middle of the week. A much stronger
system still looks to have the potential to impact the region toward
the end of the week. Temperatures will cool down ahead of this system
and a mix of rain and snow is currently expected. Still lots of
uncertainty with this system however.
