Mainly Cloudy AM… Then Decreasing Clouds This Afternoon

Thursday’s Forecast High: 32F / Tonight’s Low: 24F – Last updated Thursday, November 14, 2019 at 8:44 AM…

As advertised, a weak clipper brought light snow to most areas Wednesday and Wednesday evening. Amounts ranged from just a dusting to about 1.5″ in a few spots. 0.2″ was reported at the La Crosse airport. Even though amounts were light, roads were rather slippery for many during the afternoon and evening commute.

Watch out for leftover slick spots this morning. Otherwise, it will be mainly cloudy this morning… then clouds will decrease this afternoon. Temps will remain cold with highs in the upper 20s to low 30s.

A weak cold front drops south across the region tonight, but I expect it to come through dry with just some passing clouds. Lows tonight will be in the low-mid 20s.

Exactly how far south the front tracks Friday will be key in determining how much sunshine your area sees. Some models take it far enough south for most areas to see mostly sunny skies. However, a few models keep the front closer with some clouds at times. As a result, I’m going to call Friday partly sunny. If we see enough sunshine, expect highs to warm into the upper 30s to around 40F.

Looking Ahead… Expect highs in the upper 30s for the weekend, with thickening clouds Saturday. A disturbance will bring a chance of light snow Saturday night, then light snow or rain/snow mix on Sunday.

Mostly cloudy Monday with highs in the low 40s. A weak disturbance will bring a slight chance of a light rain/snow mix Monday night, then a slight chance of mainly light rain showers or sprinkles on Tuesday. Highs Tuesday will be around 40F.

Partly sunny Wednesday with close to seasonable highs in the low-mid 40s.

A stronger system is being advertised for around Thursday of next week. Right now it looks like it would bring mainly rain, but some snow could mix in at night. Highs Thursday will be in the low 40s. Partly sunny Friday with highs in the upper 30s to around 40F.

Have a good Thursday! -Bill Graul
