It was another gloomy day, at least to begin with, and we did see some rain... but thankfully the rain was quite scattered and brief. Late this afternoon we even saw a few peeks of sun! Thanks to that little bit of sunshine, the high in La Crosse reached 78 degrees. Everyone else topped out in the upper 60s to mid 70s.
We'll continue to see partly to mostly cloudy skies this evening with more clearing toward Monday morning. A few sprinkles will still be possible tonight, but most of the area will be dry. Temperatures will be cooler overnight with lows in the low to mid 50s.
As we get a little wrap around moisture in the area tomorrow morning, there's a slight chance we could start Monday morning with a few sprinkles... but mainly for those north of I-90. Otherwise, expect a mix of sun and clouds, breezy winds and much cooler temperatures. Highs tomorrow will only reach the low to mid 60s. Winds will be out of the west gusting to 30mph.
Looking Ahead... We have a nice, dry week ahead with gradually warming temperatures.
Sunny to partly sunny skies can be expected Tuesday and Wednesday, but temperatures will remain a few degrees cooler-than-average. Highs both days will be in the mid to upper 60s.
As of right now, Oktoberfest weekend is looking spectacular! We're looking at mostly sunny skies with temperatures in the low 70s - doesn't get much better than that!
River information: Most area rivers will experience flooding over the next few days and several RIVER FLOOD WARNINGS are in place. The warnings continue for the Kickapoo River at Readstown, Soldiers Grove, Gays Mills, and Steuben.... The Yellow River at Necedah... The Black River at Galesville...

Have a great night! -Michelle Poedel
