The rain and snow are over and quieter weather has moved into the area. But, many locations are left with over a foot of snow, mainly in Sawyer, Price and Washburn counties. Roads may still be snow covered making for tricky driving conditions for the remainder of the day.
For the rest of Thursday expect some improvements. Cloudy skies will begin to break up allowing for some peeks of sunshine later this afternoon into the evening. Temperatures will remain in the cool side (about 10-15° below average) in the 40s. Overall, winds will continue out of the northwest on the lighter side about 5-10 miles per hour.
Overnight, clouds will continue to break up allowing temperatures to fall back into the mid 20s. Clearer skies for Friday leading to sunshine along with slightly milder highs near 50°.
Temperatures continue to rise into the Easter holiday weekend, but as a cold front moves into the area, there is a chance some of those egg hunts may be soggy. Not a washout by any means, but it will be a good idea to bring along an umbrella for those holiday plans. By Sunday, highs will climb into the 60s with even milder air ahead into early next week. Monday may even see highs in the 70s across the Coulee Region! A lot to look forward to...and the extended outlook features more seasonable temperatures in the 50s and 60s.
