What a difference a day makes! Yesterday, the La Crosse Airport reached a high of 90°F. Today... just 75°F. That's 15 degrees below yesterday's high temp, and 5 degrees below average. Today's temperatures would have been normal for mid September.
More clouds will move in overnight, but there's just a small chance of a few showers or storms.... mainly for those south & west of La Crosse... but a few may even move into some of our northern communities. Lows tonight will be in the mid to upper 50s.
Wednesday's weather will be very similar to today's. High pressure will be in control so we'll see partly sunny skies and highs in the upper 70s. There will once again be a small chance of a few storms south and west in the afternoon.
Looking Ahead... That area of high pressure will push east during the day Wednesday, and this will allow another storm system to approach from the southwest. Clouds will increase Wednesday night and the chance of storms will move in late from SW to NE.
We'll see periods of showers and thunderstorms during the day on Thursday. Organized severe weather doesn't look likely, but we could see some heavy rain. Highs Thursday will be in the low to mid 70s.
The chance of showers and thunderstorms will continue for Friday and Saturday, as well. Neither day looks to be a washout. Highs will be in the upper 70s to near 80.
Sunday, at this point, is looking like the pick day of the Labor Day weekend: Partly sunny skies with temperatures in the low 80s. Rain chances return for Labor Day on Monday.
Have a great night! -Michelle Poedel
