Weather Summary for Upper Mississippi River Valley
National Weather Service La Crosse WI
426 AM CDT FRI MAY 20 2016
High pressure brought another pleasant night to the region. Clouds
were on the increase through the night however, thanks to a storm
system moving through the central part of the country. Overnight
temperatures fell into the 30s in the typical cool spots over
northern and central Wisconsin, but otherwise readings remained in
the 40s and lower 50s.
As the storm system continues to pass to the south, expect clouds to
persist across Iowa, as well as southern parts of Minnesota and
Wisconsin. But there will be enough filtered sunshine to allow
afternoon highs to warm into the lower and middle 70s.
High pressure will continue to dominate into the weekend, providing
mainly sunny and dry conditions. Lows Friday night will range from
the middle 40s to lower 50s...with highs on Saturday in the middle
and upper 70s. Highs may top the 80 degree mark on Sunday.
Looking ahead...a more active weather pattern appears to be coming
next week, with periodic chances for showers and thunderstorms.
