StormTeam 8 Forecast:  High 81° / Low 53°... Clear and mild Friday night. Increasing clouds Saturday with rain Saturday night into Sunday.

Updated Friday, April 17, 2015 at 5:21 PM...

We saw another very warm Friday. We topped out at 81 degrees in La Crosse. Many other locations warmed well into the 70s. Our average high in La Crosse is around 60.

We'll see another clear and mild night Friday night as lows drop into the middle 40s to lower 50s.

A strong area of low pressure that has been sitting almost stationary over the western High Plains the past few days... fill finally start to slowly shift east/northeast closer to our area over the weekend. The result will be an increase in clouds on Saturday with a slight chance for some afternoon t-showers west of the Miss. River.

Saturday night and Sunday will bring a good chance of rain showers and some isolated t-storms region-wide as the the low tracks closer and hooks up with a disturbance to the north. The increase in clouds Saturday will keep highs in the upper 60s to near lower 70s Saturday... then into the upper 50s to around 60º Sunday.

Looking Ahead... Temps get even cooler for next week with highs mainly in the low-mid 50s and lows slipping into the low-mid 30s. The slow moving low will creep by to our south early in the week, so there's a small chance for a few showers Monday and Tuesday. With temps near freezing at night, a few snowflakes could even try to mix in at times in some spots. It looks mainly dry Wednesday through Friday, but temps will still be a bit below average.

Happy Friday and have a great weekend! -Cory Malles
