Weather Summary for Upper Mississippi River Valley
National Weather Service La Crosse WI
1115 AM CDT Sat Apr 14 2018

A strong low pressure system will continue to bring a wintry mix of
precipitation to the region this weekend. Last night, areas along
and north of Interstate 90 received 1 to 3 inches of snow and sleet
accumulation. Precipitation will increase in coverage this
afternoon, with mainly snow north of Interstate 90, a mix of snow,
sleet, and freezing rain along the Interstate 90 corridor, and
mainly rain from east central Iowa into far southern Wisconsin. The
transition lines for precipitation types will gradually shift
southward this evening into tonight as temperatures cool. By Sunday
afternoon, expect mainly snow to be falling.

Storm total snow accumulations are expected to range from 6 to 14
inches along and north of Interstate 90, with lower totals farther
south. Ice accumulation of one tenth to one quarter of an inch may
also be possible. In addition, northeast winds will remain strong
into tonight, with gusts approaching 40 mph. This will create areas
of blowing and drifting snow across open areas. Temperatures will
mainly be in the mid 20s to mid 30s through Sunday.
