Good Saturday to you! Expect mainly cloudy skies and mild temperatures today ahead of a storm system. Highs will be in the upper 20s to low 30s.
Clouds will continue to thicken this evening, with light snow becoming likely after midnight as temperatures drop back into the middle teens.
Snow will continue into the first half of Sunday. right now... the latest model data suggests a snow totals of 2" to 3" in the La Crosse area, with heavier amounts across the far southern half of the viewing area. In fact, amounts in the 3"-6" range are possible in parts of these areas. This is why the National Weather Service has issued a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for Winnishiek, Crawford, Richland and Allamakee Counties from 7pm tonight until 9pm Sunday. Farther north, amounts look to remain between a trace and two inches. In addition to the snow, it will be a lot colder. Temperatures will hold in the mid-teens.
**Note** The snow forecast for Saturday night into Sunday is highly variable at this time. As a result, the snow forecast is subject to change. Snow amounts could be increased or decreased depending on how the above weather systems interact with one another. Please be sure to check the latest forecasts for changes. This is especially true if you have travel plans tonight into Sunday.
Looking Ahead... Near or below average temps look to be the rule for the first several days of February. Highs next week look to be in the teens to near 20º Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Mid-upper 20s are expected Tuesday. Temps could then warm quite a bit by the start of the following weekend with readings closer to 30º on Saturday.
A couple of weak clipper-type systems will race across the region Tuesday and Wednesday and Saturday, bringing light snow chances.
Have a great day! -Michelle Poedel
