A stacked low pressure system is lining up to the west of the region. This has already allowed for showers to develop south of I-90. But, the surface is still extremely dry, which will make it difficult for rain to reach the ground. The chance for rain will exist as far north as I-90. So those that are south of I-90 keep the umbrella handy, if you are north you can leave it at home!
As the low pressure exits, there will be the chance for the sunshine to return at times Wednesday. But leftover energy may bring pop-up showers in the afternoon.
The gloomy skies and our position with the low pressure will keep the Coulee Region in a cooler sector. Highs today will be within the 50s, which La Crosse hasn’t had a 50 degree high since April 23rd.
As the sunshine returns, there will be a chance to flirt with the low 60s Wednesday and Thursday. Yet, a cold front will be on approach Thursday. This cold front will bring early spring temperatures. The weekend forecast will bring back the 50-degree highs and lows overnight could be in the 20s/30s. Those temperatures mean freezing and frost will be likely Friday and Saturday morning.
After a chance for drizzle tomorrow as the low pressure exits, a drier pattern will bring us to the weekend. And not only will it be dry but blue skies will return in full force through Saturday.
