LATEST FORECAST DISCUSSION
Meteorologist: Drew Williams
*MORE SUNSHINE AND MILDER TEMPERATURES FOR THE FINAL WEEKEND OF WINTER.*
This evening and tonight the sky remains clear, the wind will be light, so some patchy fog is possible. Early morning low temperatures will be in the teens and 20's. Clouds will increase some Sunday, it still looks like a nice day. Highs will once again be in the mid and upper 40's in the Chippewa Valley. A bit warmer in the Coulee Region with highs in the low 50's. A mostly cloudy sky is expected tomorrow night, temperatures will be cool in the 20's and low 30's.
Another weather system will then emerge from the Plains, again tracking to the east early next week. A stronger high will be setting up shop to our northeast over the Northern Great Lakes, putting us in a dry easterly flow. Breezes should pick up on Monday, as cooler air returns. Clouds will be moving in, with highs in the low 40's. Another pocket of colder air is then expected to take hold of the region for a few days as what remains of this weather system slides into the area. It will be fighting dry air and chances of any precipitation remain low. For now Tuesday looks dry as we welcome the official start of spring. It will be cooler again, with highs only in the mid-upper 30's.
As that system exits, dry weather is then forecast for next Wednesday and Thursday. A mix of sunshine and clouds mid-week, while a mostly clear sky is expected Thursday. Temperatures will be comfortable those days in the low to mid 40's. This time next week, wet weather may return in the form of some rain next Friday.
