Weather Summary for Upper Mississippi River Valley
National Weather Service La Crosse WI
414 AM CDT Fri Mar 17 2017

An upper level disturbance and an approaching low brought a mix of
light rain, light snow and some freezing rain to mainly areas
along and northeast of the Mississippi River. Most precipitation
amounts have been on the light side, but some roads became
slippery from central Wisconsin into northern Minnesota during the
overnight hours. Early morning temperatures ranged from the upper
20s in parts of northern Minnesota and Wisconsin, to the mid 40s
across southern Iowa.

Some light rain or snow chances will linger today, mainly over
northeast Minnesota and northeast Wisconsin. Mostly sunny skies
are expected across the southwest half of the region this morning,
before clouds behind the departing low spread back south across
the area. Increasing west and northwest winds are also going to
spread across the area behind the departing low. Look for highs to
range from some 30s across the northland, to near 60 across
southern Iowa.

High pressure is going to build in tonight, however skies are
going to remain mostly cloudy and cloudy over much of the Upper
Midwest. Some small light snow or freezing drizzle chances will
linger up near lake Superior and in northeast Wisconsin. Look for
lows to range from around 20 in northwest Minnesota to the mid
30s in northeast Illinois.

Partly sunny skies are expected across the region on Saturday,
with highs mostly in the upper 30s and 40s.
