Weather Summary for Upper Mississippi River Valley
National Weather Service La Crosse WI
310 AM CST Tue Feb 21 2017
A large area of clouds was moving eastward across Wisconsin early
this morning. To the west, skies have cleared, but areas have fog
have developed. It remained very mild with lows so far ranging from
the low 30s over southwest Minnesota under the clear skies...to the
lower 50s in eastern Wisconsin where it was cloudy.
Weather more typical of April will persist into Wednesday as the
spring-like airmass holds fast across the Upper Mississippi River
Valley. Highs in the 60s to even around 70 are expected today and
Wednesday, with Wednesday the warmest day.
Winter is not done with us though as a winter storm is slated to
drive across the region Thursday night through Friday night. Rain,
accumulating snows and wind will accompany the storm. Where the
heaviest snow falls is not certain...but there could be considerable
impacts to travel.
