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

Clouds were on the increase from the west early this morning, with
areas of snow and rain, along with scattered thunderstorms, pushing
into portions of western Iowa and southwest Minnesota. Low
temperatures so far ranged in the upper 20s to lower 30s.

A spring storm will track east across the Mid Mississippi River
Valley today with an area of snow to rain to a wintry mix spreading
north and northwest of it. Heavy snows are expected across far
southern Minnesota, northern Iowa, into southern Wisconsin.
Accumulations in excess of 6 inches are possible for some locations.
Hazardous to slippery travel will result from the snowfall. The
system will exit quickly this evening, with the accumulating snows
done for most before midnight. Winter storm warnings and advisories
are in effect for parts of the region. High temperatures today will
range from the upper 30s over northern Wisconsin to near 50 in
eastern Iowa. Lows tonight will range in the 20s.

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.
