Gloomy & Blustery Before Sunshine Returns

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Severe weather steered away from the Coulee Region with the exception of thunder and lightning in the area. Brief heavy rain north of I-90 and into Minnesota will cause for river rises into next week, so make sure to monitor river levels. A few showers are possible today with little to no accumulation but overall it will be a brisk and gloomy day before more sunshine is possible tomorrow.

Blustery & Chilly Today…

The Coulee Region is on the back side of the low pressure system that brought showers and storms yesterday. Strong winds are wrapping around that low and will cause for a windy day, as winds could gust to 30 mph at times this afternoon with that cold Canada air. High temperatures will only range from the 40s to low 50s, so a cool April day is on tap but improvements are coming.
