ALERT NIGHT: Scattered Storms Tonight… Some Could Be Strong -Bill Graul
Cooler This Weekend
Tonight’s Forecast Low: 59F / Friday’s Forecast High: 69F…
ALERT NIGHT: Low pressure to our west is lifting a warm front northward into our area this evening… which is sparking scattered showers and t-storms. Some of these storms have been strong to severe to the north/west of La Crosse producing hail and gusty winds.
The SPC has much of our area either in a Tornado Watch (west) or Severe T-Storm Watch… until 10 p.m. A line of storms will slowly push east/southeast across the area this evening… while the storms themselves track to the east/northeast.
Locally heavy rainfall will also be possible tonight if storms track over the same areas repeatedly. Even so, the flooding threat is fairly low since the ground is fairly dry and green-up is well under way. Lows tonight will be in the 50s to near 60F.
Lingering showers possible into Friday morning, then partly sunny during the afternoon. High temps on Friday will be in the mid-upper 60s for most. Cooler this weekend with highs only in the 50s Saturday, then low 60s Sunday. There will also be plenty of clouds Saturday, along with a chance of rain showers. Sunday looks dry at this point.
Looking Ahead… Partly sunny and dry Monday, then low-end chances for showers and isolated thunder on Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs through Wednesday in the mid-upper 60s. Dry and warmer next Thursday and Friday with highs back in the 70s.
Have a good night, but stay weather aware… just in case. -Bill Graul
