Today is the halfway mark of September. So far the month has been nearly average with precipitation values behind average. For the next few days temperatures will stay close to that average with a few rain chances.
Compared to the last few days under the gray skies, conditions will feel much more pleasant today. Under clear skies overnight, temperatures are cool but comfortable in the 50s. As the sunshine sticks around for much of your Wednesday, temperatures will return to the mid to upper 70s.
Overnight the region will tap into a new pattern. First, the winds will pick up pace again and become strong from the south. Southerly winds will keep lows in the 60s with high temperatures climbing into the 80s. Sunshine will be around with increasing clouds possible late in the day.
Then a low pressure system will swing a cold front through the region Friday morning. Showers and thunderstorms are possible with a low severe threat. Showers and gloomy conditions will linger for much of Friday. Then clearing will quickly return Saturday.
The rest of the weekend sunshine and warm temperatures are on tap. The La Crosse area might even have a chance to reach a 90 degree day this weekend.
