Outlook: A VERY warm Easter, then increasing rain chances

Rain and thunderstorms are likely late Sunday night through Monday, as a surface low moves over the Midwest.

As far as the weather, it is a fantastic Easter weekend! Does it get much better than this?

Easter Sunday will be warmer than average with highs near 80 degrees! It will be mostly sunny, and a perfect day to take a stroll. Isolated showers cannot be ruled out during the afternoon, especially north of La Crosse, as a cold front slowly drops in from the north. The rain will struggle due to the marginal amount of moisture in the atmosphere.

Rain is more likely late Sunday night through Monday, as a surface low strengthens and moves over the Midwest. More than a half inch of rain is possible in some locations. The rest of the next work week appears pleasant with sunshine on Tuesday and Wednesday, and a slight chance of rain on Thursday. High temperatures will be in the 60s, and lows will be above freezing.
