A chilly start today, clear skies and light winds dropping early morning lows into the lower 30's and even the upper 20's for some areas this morning. But today will feature lots of sunshine that will warm highs around 60° later on today.
Today is just the beginning of a quiet weather week with the warming trend continuing for our area. Sunny conditions and light winds from the northeast today will warm afternoon temperatures up to near average for the Chippewa Valley. A few degrees below average for the Coulee Region but still comfortable in the low 60's.
Monday looks slightly warmer topping out in the mid-60's. We'll be watching a weak disturbance that will bring some scattered clouds Tuesday into Wednesday. Right now this system doesn't look strong enough to produce any rain, but we'll have to watch it. It will slow the warm up though just a bit. Later in the week, more sunshine will emerge and a developing southwest flow will help push temperatures up over 70 degrees to start the month of May. With all of the dry weather this week fire danger and drought conditions may once again be an issue for western Wisconsin. Be sure to tune into WEAU13 for the latest updates on fire and burning safety.
Look for clouds and possibly another system to develop next weekend with temperatures in the 70's. Until then enjoy the stretch of great weather!
