Warming Up With Times Of Sunshine

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

The Coulee Region averaged around half an inch of rainfall and winds gusted to 40 mph as the powerful low pressure pushed into the Upper Midwest yesterday. This low pressure system is still working northeast through the Midwest today but for our region we will stay mostly dry with warming conditions.

Windy day yesterday will lead to a windy day today

Drying Out…

The gloomy skies will move out as the low pressure pulls Northeast and sunshine could be around at times before sunset. The overcast conditions only allow for temperatures to drop to the 50s and this will help for a warm up today. The lower 70s will be the forecast highs today as southerly winds stay strong but help warm. Winds will calm and sunshine sticks around for Thursday with another day of average temperatures before another rainy day returns.

Large and powerful low pressure continues to swing through the Upper Midwest

Friday Storms…

Another low pressure will form off the Rockies tomorrow and bring a round of showers with the possible thunderstorms Friday. Heavy rain will result from this system and the severe weather holds to the south for now. The heavy rain will add to the already flooding river ways which everyone will need to keep a close eye on especially if you are planning to spend it on the water for Memorial weekend.

Memorial Day weekend forecast…
