Friday clouds…

Clouds with breaks in the overcast limited Friday afternoon highs to the upper 60s and lower 70s. That’s slightly below average, but we will trend toward above normal readings for the next several days.

Gloomier weekend …

A slowly moving weather system will move in for later tonight through Sunday. In fact, the weather pattern will become very active through next week. Our clouds will lead to showers late tonight, and rain chances will continue to ramp up by Saturday afternoon. A lull in the action will take us through Saturday night, but better chances return for Sunday.

Warmer Sunday and Monday…

The storm will draw warmer and more humid air northward for Sunday, so we will watch for the potential of stronger t-storms then. We may have to be looking at Memorial Day for stronger t-storms, too.

Warmer and active weather next week…

There will be more chances for showers and t-storms each day next week. Highs will remain above average all week long.

Tree pollen forecast...

We are in the midst of tree pollen season, and allergy sufferers are taking note. Birch pollen season is coming to an end, but other tree pollen continue.

Historical Note...

Today, May 22nd (2011) is the 9th anniversary of the La Crosse tornado. It was part of an outbreak of twisters that numbered 11 in Wisconsin. The tornado had a path length of 28 miles and winds up to 135 mph. It produced EF2 damage at times, including over the southern parts of La Crosse. Fortunately, there were no injuries or fatalities. Note: a devastating tornado killed 166 people in Joplin, Missouri on that day.
