LA CROSSE, Wis - High Today: 60F / Low Tonight: 38F - Last updated Friday, November 24, 2017 at 8:55 AM...
It's going to be an unseasonably mild Black Friday with highs in the 50s to around 60º. In fact, I'm forecasting a high of 60º in La Crosse... and the record high today stands at 62º set in 1931. Expect lots of sunshine this morning, then an approaching cool front will bring some passing clouds this afternoon. There's a small chance for some isolated showers or sprinkles in spots this afternoon and early this evening. The greatest chances will be in northern parts of the viewing area.
Winds will shift around to the NW this evening as the cold front tracks through and could be rather breezy at 10-20 mph, with gusts to 25 mph possible. It will be partly cloudy tonight with lows in the mid-upper 30s.
A few scattered clouds Saturday morning, then expect lots of sunshine for the afternoon. It will be cooler tomorrow with highs in the low-mid 40s, but still above average. (Average highs this time of year are in the upper 30s) Still a bit breezy Saturday with NW winds 10-20 mph.
Mostly sunny Sunday with highs in the mid-upper 40s. Another great travel day across the Upper Midwest for those of you heading home from Thanksgiving destinations.
Looking Ahead... Partly cloudy, breezy and warmer Monday with highs climbing well back into the 50s again. Another cool front blows through Monday night into Tuesday morning... perhaps sparking a few sprinkles, but that's about it. It will cool highs Tuesday back into the upper 40s with breezy NW winds.
Still no major storm systems in sight for the region through next week. It looks mainly dry Wednesday through Saturday with a mix of sun and clouds. Temps will be a bit closer to average, with highs ranging from the upper 30s to low-mid 40s... perhaps mid-upper 40s by Saturday.
Happy Friday and have a great weekend! Enjoy these mild temps while we can. -Bill Graul
