Monday Night Forecast

Clouds increase Tuesday as a potent area of low pressure approaches from the west and lifts a warm front north into our area. This will result in the chance for showers and isolated thunder Tuesday afternoon, with highs in the 57-64F range.

ALERT NIGHT Tuesday Night: The chance for showers and t-storms increases Tuesday evening and into the overnight. This is when there’s a chance for some strong to perhaps severe storms near and south of I-94 along the warm front… then also when a cold front tracks east across the region overnight. How strong the storms will be could hinge on how much sunshine we see Tuesday and how warm temps get. The local timing looks to be from about 8 p.m. Tuesday to 3 a.m. Wednesday. Large hail is the main threat, with strong winds and isolated tornadoes secondary threats, but the greater tornado risk looks to be in the Level 3 risk area to our southwest into Iowa.

Rain tracker shows the chance for around an inch or more in any heavier thunderstorms that develop. The overall flooding risk is low however, since the ground is now thawed and the soil is fairly dry due to below average precipitation over the past several months.

Potential Rainfall Tuesday Night into Wednesday Morning

There will still be a chance for showers and t-storms Wednesday, but it will be highly dependent on where the cold front is during prime heating of the afternoon. Many models have the front already to our east, so that would take the higher rain chances and threat for strong/severe storms more to our east/southeast as well. If the front moves through slower, then we may still have some strong storms in parts of our area… so stay tuned for updates! Highs on Wednesday will be in the upper 50s to low 60s… and breezy too.

Looking Ahead… It then turns much cooler again Thursday with highs only in the low-mid 40s, plus there could be some flurries in spots. It’s going to be quite windy as well, with wind gusts of 30-45 mph possible. This will make for a raw and blustery day for sure!

8 Day Build 3

Unfortunately, it looks like we are in for another prolonged stretch of below average temps with highs Friday through Easter weekend only in the 40s, with overnight lows in the upper 20s to low 30s. High temps during that stretch should be closer to 60F in La Crosse! Most of the days look dry, except a small chance of light rain or snow showers late Sunday into Monday. Remember folks… I’m just the messenger!

Have a good night, but keep an eye on things Tuesday night. -Bill Graul
