LATEST FORECAST DISCUSSION
Meteorologist: Darren Maier
**FLOOD WARNINGS: Trempealeau & Mississippi Rivers**
The sky will remain mostly cloudy tonight as another batch of showers moves through from the west. These will not add up to very much, with any one location likely seeing less than .10" overnight. Temperatures remain on the warmer side and will only be dropping down into the 50's.
Heading into the final day of this work week the next front will be sliding through during the afternoon. Unfortunately it will not be a repeat of the nice weather we enjoyed on Thursday.. but it also won't be all that bad. We will see a mixture of clouds and sunshine. Shower and storms chances will be mainly in the afternoon, but these are not expected to be widespread and much of the day should remain dry. Highs will again be around 70. What's left of the front will slide east and fizzle out into early Saturday. This should leave much of our area with a window of time in this holiday weekend that will be dry. Right now that appears to be on Saturday with sunshine and clouds and highs again in the 70's. Southern areas could see a shower sneak in during the late afternoon.
The rest of the holiday weekend will see at least some chance for rain, but even Sunday looks to be mostly dry. An upper trough will be dropping south out of Canada, returning some clouds and cooler air. Much of our area should still remain on the front side of this trough on Sunday, keeping temperatures around 70 with an increasing chance of a few showers by later in the day. Chances will be higher on Memorial Day as the trough moves overhead. These will likely be driven by heating, so the best chances for showers and storms will come in the afternoon and evening. It will be cooler as highs fall back into the 60's.
Moving into next week and the final few days of May, temperatures will remain below average. The coolest air should be around on Tuesday with highs in the low 60's and still the chance for a few scattered showers, along with a mostly cloudy sky. Improvements should then come on Wednesday as the trough slides east and temperatures start to rise higher into the 60's. By next Thursday and the start of June, we look to get back to around average with further warming possible heading towards the following weekend.
