NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LA CROSSE WI

HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE AREA ON FRIDAY PROVIDED FOR MAINLY SUNNY
SKIES AND ONLY LIGHT WINDS. THIS HELPED AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES
RISE INTO THE 50S IN MOST PLACES. HOWEVER TEMPERATURES DID STAY
IN THE 40S WHERE THERE WAS STILL SNOW ON THE GROUND...FROM CENTRAL
MINNESOTA INTO NORTHERN WISCONSIN FROM THE RECENT STORM SYSTEM.

A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM OVER WESTERN SOUTH DAKOTA WILL MOVE NORTHEAST
INTO SOUTHERN CANADA BY SATURDAY. AHEAD OF THIS SYSTEM...SOUTHERLY
WINDS WILL INCREASE OVERNIGHT...AND ESPECIALLY ON SATURDAY. GUSTS
OF 30 TO 35 MPH ARE EXPECTED BY AFTERNOON. BUT THESE WINDS WILL
ALSO BRING WARMER AIR INTO THE REGION...SENDING TEMPERATURES UP
INTO THE 60S FOR THE LOCAL AREA. HIGHS ACROSS THE REGION WILL
RANGE FROM THE 70S ACROSS CENTRAL IOWA...TO THE LOWER 50S OVER
NORTHERN WISCONSIN.

THE SYSTEM WILL SEND A COLD FRONT DOWN INTO THE AREA SATURDAY

THIS WILL LEAD TO A GOOD CHANCE FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS.
