A strong disturbance moved along a stalled front from the Southern Plains toward southern Wisconsin today. This disturbance brought a good slug of moisture with it from the Gulf of Mexico. As a result, we saw a very wet day. Rainfall totals ranged from around a half inch up to an inch in half around the area today.
Persistent rain will continue in northern and western parts of the viewing area through late evening. For La Crosse and points south and east, the rain will be a bit more scattered. Either way... it looks like a wet night for much of the area. Temperatures will not fall much thanks to clouds and rain. Look for lows into the middle to upper 50s.
Drier air moves across the area tomorrow. This should bring a bit of sunshine to the area, although we had to keep a small chance for rain in the far northern and eastern parts of the area. Temperatures will respond by warming into the upper 70s to lower 80s. Most of Thursday looks dry, as well, with highs in the lower 80s.
Another system will bring a chance of showers and t-storms Thursday night into Friday. The clouds and rain chances Friday will knock highs back into the 70s.
Looking Ahead... The weekend will be quite a bit cooler with highs in the 60s., but it should remain dry. In fact, it now appears the first half of next will be dry, as well... with highs warming back into the 70s to near 80 by the middle of next week. We'll pick up a chance for more showers and t-storms next Wednesday.
Have a great night and stay dry! -Cory Malles
