National Weather Service La Crosse WI
837 PM CDT THU MAY 19 2016
Overall a very pleasant afternoon. Light southerly winds and very
little cloud cover led to afternoon high temperatures in the upper
60s to lower 70s.
Overnight lows will be warmer than past nights, with temperatures
in the upper 30s to 40s. Some clouds will begin to move in from
the south keeping northeast Iowa, southeast Minnesota, and
southwest Wisconsin slightly warmer.
High pressure will remain the main weather influence for the Upper
Mississippi River Valley for the rest of the week leading to dry
and mostly sunny conditions, along with a continued warming trend.
Highs this weekend will climb into the mid to upper 70s with some
areas perhaps reaching 80. Lows will warm into the mid 40s to
lower 50s mitigating the threat for frost. A more active weather
pattern appears to be coming next week as shower and thunderstorm
chances return to the forecast.
