Weather Summary for Upper Mississippi River Valley
National Weather Service La Crosse WI
329 AM CST Sun Feb 19 2017

Skies were clear to partly cloudy across the Upper Midwest during
the late evening and overnight hours. This along with light winds
allowed some dense fog to form across parts of Iowa into far
southern Minnesota. Early morning temperatures remained mild for
late February, ranging from the mid 20s to mid 30s across much of
Minnesota, Wisconsin and northern Iowa, to the lower and mid 40s
across southern Iowa.

Any fog is expected to lift and dissipate after sunrise. High
clouds are going to increase over the region today as a storm
system begins to move out of the Rockies into the plains. Even
with the increasing clouds, it will be another very warm February
day with highs expected to range from the upper 40s and 50s across
the northland, to the lower 70s in southern Iowa.

Clouds will continue to thicken over the Upper Midwest tonight,
with chances of rain and a few thunderstorms spreading into
western Iowa and southwest Minnesota after midnight. South and
southeast winds are going to increase as well, all working to keep
lows well above the normals tonight. Lows tonight are expected to
range from the 30s in northeast Wisconsin, to the mid 50s in
southwest Iowa.

Looking ahead, rain, along with a few thunderstorms is going to
spread east across the region on Monday. Even so, it will be
another warm day with highs mostly in the 50s to lower 60s.
