LATEST FORECAST DISCUSSION
Meteorologist: Drew Williams
Another cool and cloudy day across the region. Most of the day looks dry a few scattered showers are begging to arrive in our southern counties this afternoon. A slight chance of light showers remains Sunday for much of Western Wisconsin.
Low pressure to our southwest has been inching closer today, while high pressure in Canada has been trickling down some but has remained to our north. What this means is that most of the day has been dry... especially in the Chippewa Valley. The skies have been mostly cloudy however while highs have stayed on the cool side again in the upper 30's and low 40's. It's also been a bit breezy today, winds from the northeast around 10 to 15 miles per hour. Scattered showers are pushing into the Coulee Region and may make it further north later tonight. A second wave of low pressure is then forecast to develop and lift a bit closer to the area on Sunday. This would bring the chance for additional scattered showers, while it remains cloudy with highs in the upper 40's.
The pattern remains active over the next week with a series of weather systems working through the Central part of the country. Right now most of these look to pass us by far enough south to keep any rain chances very low at this time. Monday will remain mostly cloudy with highs in the 40's while some sunshine finally returns by Tuesday. An area of high pressure is expected to be centered to our north allowing for some clearing and more dry weather through the middle of next week. Temperatures should also be able to warm a bit more with highs back into the 50's. With this weekend's wet weather hopefully things will green up some as we head into April.
Have a wonderful weekend!
