Fire Weather Planning Forecast
National Weather Service La Crosse WI
143 PM CST Fri Nov 17 2017

...Light rain, drizzle or light snow tonight into early Saturday,
Colder and breezy for Saturday...

.DISCUSSION...A low and cold front will bring chances of light rain,
drizzle or light snow to the districts tonight into Saturday morning.
Cooler and drier high pressure builds across the region Saturday,
with northwest wind 10-20 mph gusting 20-30 mph and decreasing clouds.
Saturday night will be a colder night as the high slides across the
region. Sunday through next week continues to trend as a dry period
across the districts. Warming already starts to return for Sunday as
southwest winds on the back side of the high spread across the
districts. The warming continues into Monday, before another Canadian
cold front push south across the area Monday night. This front will
do little more than usher the next Canadian high into the Upper
Midwest for Tuesday and Wednesday. Warming returns for Thursday and
Friday as the mid-week high moves east of the region. Temperatures
will be below normal Saturday, warming to above normal Monday, then
back to below normal for midweek and near normal for later next week.
