Grab Your Umbrella There’s More Rain Today

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

This first rumble of thunder occurred this morning in La Crosse with heavy rain at times as a quick band of rain pushed through the Coulee Region. You might even be able to see brown grass breaking through the melting snow pack. These are all signs that spring is slowly approaching, but growing concern in flooding as rain is still falling and snow continues to significantly melt.

Fog Improving…

Dense fog had persisted through the entire Coulee Region at times creating dangerous conditions. Localizes areas still have spots of dense fog so take it slow and make sure to have your headlights on. But as the rain lifts and we sit in a dry slot the fog is lifting.

Scattered Rain…

Scattered rain showers around today as we will stay east of the low pressure. It’s a large system bringing rain, snow and ice to the Midwest and will start to dissipate into tomorrow. The last of this large and long lasting system for our region will be another possible round of heavy rain during your evening commute. Then overnight/early tomorrow morning wintry mix/snow possible as temperatures quickly cool, but bringing little accumulation to the area.

Flooding Still A Concern…

The combination of warming, heavy snow pack and rain will bring more flooding to the region. A Flood Watch will continue in effect through Friday morning. River flooding from the rain and ice jams will cause problems. There are already River Flood Warnings in effect for many tributaries of the Mississippi River. Localized ponding of water on roads and streets will likely occur.

Blustery Friday…

Behind the low pressure system a tight gradient could bring winds to 30 mph and gusting at times. It will make for a brisk day as temperatures drop significantly as cold air rushes in behind the low pressure. Dropping temperatures could allow for very icy conditions tomorrow, as all the rain and melting will freeze. If traveling tomorrow stay in tune with the forecast.
