FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Bundle up this evening! -Erik Dean
Overnight lows will be in the 20s. That wind chill factor will be well below that.
DISCUSSION: What a difference 24 hours can make. We went from highs in the 60s & even low 70s to highs in some places struggling to hit freezing. In La Crosse, we hit a high of 34°. The caveat to that was that we hit it just after midnight (12:11 AM to be exact.) Our average low is 32° so our high end today is for the most part where we should be on the low end. Our average high for this time of year is now 48°. I wish I could say there is a warming trend in the near future, but unfortunately I can’t say that at this time.
FORECAST: When you wake up in the morning, temperature in the 20s will greet you yet again. This is almost like deja vu of this morning. Lows will be in the 20s with feels like temperatures being in the teens. SkyTracker is painting some flurries across the area for tomorrow morning. I want to throw this out that the majority of us will not see flurries, but a few across the region will not be out of the question.
NEXT 8 DAYS
This trend of below normal temperatures will continue for at least the next 8 Days. Snow shower chances are in the forecast for Monday & Tuesday as well as Wednesday. Then we will see another front push through Wednesday Night & Thursday which will drop temperatures again with highs in the upper 20s – low 30s. Simply put, bundle up if you have any outdoor plans over the next few days. (Or stay inside and keep it locked to all of our TV and digital platforms with a nice, warm blanket and a bowl of soup!)
Enjoy your Friday, and your weekend!
