StormTeam 8 Forecast: High 66° / Low 49°... Clouds with a few sprinkles this evening. Some clearing and fog late?

A low pressure system over Indiana will continue to slowly wobble off to the southeast later tonight. As it does, expect those pesky sprinkles and light showers to end around sunset. Clouds should break up a bit later tonight, as well. As the sky clears keep an eye out for areas of fog. Overnight lows will drop into the 45 to 50 degree range.
High pressure takes over Thursday with plenty of sunshine and warmer highs in the upper 60s to around 70º. A few fair-weather clouds could bubble up with the afternoon heating.
Looking Ahead... We will have to continue to watch that area of low pressure to our southeast as it looks like it will stall out over the Ohio Valley, then try to retrograde (or move back to the W/NW) Friday and Saturday. It still should be far enough from the region for another dry day Friday, but clouds will gradually increase through the day. Some light rain showers or sprinkles could creep into parts of the area Friday night from the east/southeast. Highs Friday will mainly be in the upper 60s.
The forecast models are now in better agreement in bringing that pesky low back toward the area and close enough Saturday that parts of the area could see some light rain showers or sprinkles. The best chances will be east of the Miss. River. If we see showers in the La Crosse area, amounts should be quite light so I'm not expecting the weather to impact the Maple Leaf parade all that much. High temps will cool a bit into the mid-upper 60s.
That low will then start to shift farther east Sunday and Monday, so expect dry conditions those two days with highs in the upper 60s Sunday, then around 70º Monday under partly sunny skies.
A disturbance moves in from the west Tuesday and Wednesday, bringing at least a slight chance for some showers and a few t-storms. It will still be mild with highs in the low 70s. Thursday looks dry at this point, but cooler with highs in the low 60s.
River information: River levels continue to fall across the region. However, there are still a couple rivers above flood stage. River Flood Warnings remain in effect for the Kickapoo River at Steuben... The Yellow River at Necedah... and the Mississippi River at McGregor.
Have a great night! -Cory Malles
