High pressure will bring a clear and seasonably cool night to the area tonight. It will also bring a clear sky, which could combine with the cool air to produce areas of fog overnight. Expect temperatures in the middle to upper 50s. A few spots in the north and east could see lows in the 40s.
We are looking at a dry day tomorrow, with highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s.
Looking Ahead... Many forecast models are hinting at a chance for a complex of showers and t-storms to develop over the Northern Plains Thursday afternoon... then track into our area Thursday night into Friday morning. This may actually be some good news as we could use some rain. The last measurable rain in La Crosse fell on July 14th. Temperatures Friday will be dependent on the amount of clouds cover and and any rain over the area. It appears most areas will see highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s.
A warm front then looks to lift northeast across the region late Friday night into Saturday morning, possibly bringing a chance for some showers and t-storms. It will also cause warmer highs Saturday in the mid 80s, with higher humidity as well.
The rain chances Sunday are looking less impressive with the latest forecast data, but some isolated t-showers could still occur with a cool front passage. The front should knock highs back into the upper 70s to low 80s Sunday through Tuesday. As far as rain is concerned next week, the cool temperatures near the surface means there is even colder air aloft. This will set the stage for mainly dry mornings with showers or t-storms popping up during the afternoon which will fall apart after sunset. The best advice. Keep an umbrella handy just in case.
Have a great night! -Cory Malles
