One More Bitterly Cold Night

LA CROSSE, Wis - High Today: 15F / Low Tonight: 0F - Last updated Tuesday, January 16, 2018 at 6:17 PM...

High pressure will bring one more frigid night to the region. We'll see a mix of clouds and stars tonight as temperatures fall into the single digits above and below zero. Winds will remain light tonight, so wind chills won't be quite as brutal. Having said that, all it takes is a puff of wind here and there to knock wind chill values into the -10 to -20 degree range. However, these readings should be sporadic and short-lived. They will be most likely across southeastern Minnesota and on ridge tops in western Wisconsin.

More sunshine is on tap for tomorrow.  It will also be a bit warmer as highs top out in the lower to middle 20s. It will feel a bit colder than that thanks to a breezy S/SW wind 10-20 mph.

Looking Ahead... Temps start to really take off Thursday with highs in the low-mid 30s thanks to a southerly flow. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny sunny, with more clouds to the north as a weak disturbance zips by north of our viewing area.

Temps warm even more Friday and Saturday with highs in the upper 30s. Some spots might even flirt with 40º if we see enough sunshine. At this point, it looks like partly sunny skies can be expected Friday, with increasing clouds on Saturday.

Clouds will be increasing Saturday in advance of what forecast models are advertising would be a stronger hook-type storm that could bring a wintry mix or snow later Saturday night into Sunday. It should then get cold enough Monday for mainly snow showers, especially Monday morning, as highs drop back into the 20s. It also looks rather breezy with this system on Sunday and Monday. It's still way too early to say if we'll see an accumulating snow from this system, as that would be highly dependent on the exact track the center of the low takes. This storm is still several days out, so stay tuned for updates and we'll keep a close eye on it.

Tuesday and Wednesday look dry and seasonal with highs in the 20s.

Have a great night! -Cory Malles
