It was another foggy and dreary day across the region, but it sure was mild! Highs today ranged from the upper 40s to mid 50s. With a high temperature of 53°F in La Crosse today, this is the first time we've cracked 50 degrees since November 5th! Reality settles back in starting tomorrow...
We've seen areas of rain on and off today, especially if you're in La Crosse and points south and east. That rain will continue tonight, but as a cold front moves east colder air will filter in late. Temperatures will drop into the upper 20s to low 30s by early Monday morning. This will cause the rain to change over to a wintry mix and then to all snow as temperatures drop throughout the day tomorrow. Winds will also be quite brisk Monday out of the NW with gusts up to 30mph possible. Be cautious of areas of blowing snow.
The snow will continue into late Monday night. Snowfall totals will be in the 1"-3" range for most, but those in south-central Wisconsin could see up to 4"-5" by early Tuesday morning. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for Richland County from 6am-midnight Monday.
Looking Ahead... The snow will head east by Tuesday morning and clouds will gradually decrease. We'll see a mix of clouds and sun, but it will be chilly. Highs Tuesday will only reach the mid to upper 20s.
A weak system will bring a chance of snow showers Wednesday. Highs will be in the low 30s, but once the system exits our region, another shot of cold air arrives just in time for Thanksgiving.
We'll see partly cloudy and cold conditions Thanksgiving Day with highs in the upper teens.
Temperatures will warm back into the low to mid 20s Friday and into the weekend with just small chances of light snow.
Have a great night! -Michelle Poedel
