Updated Monday, September 22, 2014 at 6:20 PM...
Even though many calendars say Fall begins tomorrow, it actually arrives tonight at 9:29pm CDT with the Autumnal Equinox. However, it's not really going to feel like Fall over the next 8 days... with above average temps.
High pressure brought a very nice Monday to the region. After some morning fog, we saw plenty of sun and highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s.
Tonight will be mostly clear and seasonably cool with lows in the mid-upper 40s. Favored cool spots north & east could slip into the upper 30s. Winds will be light, making for good ingredients for more fog late tonight into early Tuesday. In fact, it could be more widespread than what we're seeing this morning.
Once the fog lifts Tuesday morning, expect another nice day with sunny to partly cloudy skies. Highs Tuesday will be in the upper 60s to lower 70 degree range, making for a gorgeous first full day of Fall.
Looking Ahead... A weak disturbance will try to track into the region from the west on Wednesday, but it will be running into that strong ridge of high pressure sitting to our east. Even though it will be weakening even more, we can't fully rule out a chance for a few showers on Wednesday, but it's a small chance... only at about 20% and mainly contained to areas west of the Mississippi River. Temps will still be mild with highs in the low 70s.
Thursday through the weekend looks fantastic with plenty of sunshine, dry conditions and above average highs in the mid 70s. Some spots could even climb into the upper 70s to near 80º, especially on Friday and Saturday. Overnight lows will mainly be in the 50s. What amazing weather we are expecting for Oktoberfest in La Crosse!
The nice weather continues into next week as well with highs Monday and Tuesday still in the 70-75º range. Monday looks dry with just a small chance of t-showers later Tuesday.
Have a great night! -Cory Malles
