Weather Summary for Upper Mississippi River Valley
National Weather Service La Crosse WI
429 AM CST Mon Jan 22 2018

Strong low pressure moving into southwest Iowa spread mainly rain
across much of Iowa, southern Wisconsin and southeast Minnesota
during the late evening and overnight hours. Temperatures remained
mild once again under all the cloud cover, with early morning
readings ranging from around 20 across far northern Minnesota to
around 50 in southeast Iowa.

The Strong low will continue to lift northeast across the Upper
Midwest today and tonight, bringing a mix of wintry weather to
the region. The heaviest snow will fall from northwest Iowa,
across parts of south-central and southeast Minnesota into
northern Wisconsin where accumulations of mainly 6 to 10 inches
are likely. Winter storm warnings or blizzard warnings are posted
for these areas today into tonight. Much of the snow will fall
during the day today, then taper off tonight.

For areas to the south and east, a wintry mix is expected, with
lower snow totals and some light ice accumulations possible.
Travel will become difficult to hazardous, especially in the areas
receiving the heaviest snow. Even farther south and east, from
eastern Iowa into southern Wisconsin, mainly rain is expected with
a few isolated thunderstorms.

Look for highs today to range from some 20s across the northland
to the mid 50s across much of northern Illinois. Lows tonight are
going to range from the teens across Minnesota and northwest
Wisconsin to around 30 in northeast Illinois.
