LA CROSSE, Wis - High Today: 69F / Low Tonight: 40F - Last updated Monday, April 23, 2018 at 8:20 AM...
I hope you enjoyed the nice weekend. Even with plenty of clouds, the high was 60° in La Crosse on Saturday. Sunday's high was 65° thanks to more sunshine. This was the warmest day in La Crosse since way back on Nov. 24th of last year, when it was also 65°... or about 5 months ago!
Temps will continue to warm today. Like yesterday, expect plenty of sunshine with just some high clouds scattered about from time to time. Highs today will be in the mid-upper 60s, perhaps even flirting with 70° in a few valley locations. This will likely mark the warmest day so far this year for many locations.
Partly cloudy tonight with lows ranging from the mid 30s to low 40s. Look for a mix of sun and clouds on Tuesday. A cold front will track southeast across the region later in the day. North/west sections of the viewing area will see the front arrive first, so it will be a bit cooler there with highs around 60°. The front doesn't arrive until later in the day in La Crosse and points south/east... so expect highs still well into the 60s, perhaps even around 70° near the Wisconsin River. The front will be pretty moisture starved, but I can't fully rule out an isolated shower or sprinkles in spots later in the day and into Tuesday evening.
Looking Ahead... Mostly sunny Wednesday, but a bit cooler behind the front with highs in the upper 50s to around 60°.
Highs creep back into the low-mid 60s for many Thursday. Another cold front will bring a chance of light rain showers Thursday afternoon and night. That front will cool highs back into the upper 50s on Friday, but clouds will be decreasing through the day.
Next weekend is looking very nice at this point with highs back in the low-mid 60s Saturday, then upper 60s Sunday... with sunny to partly cloudy skies.
It looks even warmer to start the following week with highs Monday and Tuesday in the upper 60s to around 70°. A couple of weak disturbances could spark some isolated rain showers in spots both days.
Have a good Monday and a great week ahead! -Bill Graul
