Showers move out…

The large and powerful low pressure system continues to bring in windy and rainy conditions. For today the showers should remain light and fairly scattered.  The low pressure will be heading north and this will allow for most showers to remain north of I-90. La Crosse regional airport broke a daily precipitation record yesterday with 1.61 inches of rainfall.

Breezy and blustery…

Behind the low pressure system, the pressure gradient is very tight. What this means is that winds will be strong and gusty. Winds will be sustained from 20 to 30 mph all day long and bringing in northerly air to cool things down. Be sure to dress appropriately as well as winds will make it feel like the 30s all day!
