Not a bad weekend for mid-October with highs in the mid 50s Saturday... then low-mid 60s Sunday thanks to a southerly breeze. Today will be just a touch cooler as a cool front slides southeast across the region. Temps will still be seasonable with highs today in the upper 50s to low 60s. Expect plenty of sun this morning, then passing clouds by afternoon... especially east of the Miss. River.
Tonight will be partly cloudy and chilly with morning lows in the mid-upper 30s. Favored cold spots north & east will see lows closer to 30º, perhaps even some upper 20s.
High pressure will be in control Tuesday with plenty of sunshine and continued seasonable temps in the upper 50s.
Looking Ahead... It will be a touch warmer Wednesday in advance of an approaching cool front. Expect highs in the low 60s with gradually increasing clouds. There's a chance for some rain showers Wednesday night into Thursday. Highs on Thursday will be around 60º.
Temps will actually warm behind Thursday's system thanks to a southwesterly flow setting up aloft. Not only that, but plenty of sunshine is expected Friday and Saturday... pushing highs into the upper 60s. Some spots, including La Crosse, could even flirt with 70º!
Sunday will continue to be mild with highs in the upper 60s, but clouds will gradually increase in advance of our next disturbance. That system will bring a chance of rain showers Sunday night into Monday. It will also cool highs back closer to average in the upper 50s to near 60º to start the following week.
Have a nice Monday and a great week ahead! -Bill Graul
