StormTeam 8 Forecast: High 84° / Low 61°... Clear, cool and comfortable Friday night. Sunny and warm Saturday. T-storms possible Saturday night into Sunday.

High pressure sliding into the region will bring another clear and seasonal night to the region Friday night. Look for overnight lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s. It will be another nice night for sleeping without the air conditioner.
High pressure will remain in control for most of Saturday. The result... sunny to partly sunny skies and highs in the low to middle 80s. You'll notice the humidity gradually on the rise tomorrow as well.
Looking Ahead... A warm front will approach the area Saturday night. It is expected to produce scattered showers and t-storms from Saturday evening into the overnight. Right now, the severe risk Saturday looks rather small, with the higher risk staying across southern Minnesota and Iowa. Having said that, I can't rule out a stray strong or severe storm, especially west and south of La Crosse Saturday night.
The warm front will be followed by a cool front Sunday and Sunday night. Again... a few showers and t-storms are possible with this boundary as it slips through the area.
While temperatures will be in the 80s this weekend, get ready for cooler than average temperatures for the upcoming workweek.
We'll be in the low 80s Monday, but then fall into the mid to upper 70s for the rest of the workweek and into next weekend.
Have a great weekend! -Cory Malles
