Weather Summary for Upper Mississippi River Valley
National Weather Service La Crosse WI
1040 AM CDT Wed Apr 18 2018

During the overnight, thunderstorms, sleet and snow were seen across
portions of Iowa. Otherwise, skies were variable over the region as
temperatures slipped into the mid 20s to lower 30s.

Another storm system will bring another round of snow, some heavy,
to the region today. The highest impacted area will be across
northern Iowa, portions of far southern Minnesota into southwest
Wisconsin where amounts in a 5 to 10 inch range may be seen. Amounts
to the north of this area taper off rapidly.

Looking ahead, a quieter, drier and milder weather pattern is
expected through the upcoming weekend. The snow that falls today
will melt off by then, but runoff will likely result in rises on
area rivers and streams. The snow then tapers of by evening and then
mostly ends by midnight. Sunshine then returns for Thursday.

Looking at the temperatures, expect high in the low to mid 30s this
afternoon, then dropping into the low and mid 20s tonight.
Temperatures then warm into a 45 to 50 degree range Thursday, then
mid 40s to mid 50s for Friday.
