LATEST FORECAST DISCUSSION
Meteorologist: Drew Williams
**MORE SUNSHINE WITH WARMER TEMPERATURES TO START THE WEEKEND.**
**FLOOD WARNINGS ARE IN EFFECT FOR PARTS OF THE BLACK, MISSISSIPPI, TREMPEALEAU AND YELLOW RIVERS**
Cool with patchy fog this morning but we'll see great weather to start of the weekend. It will be milder as high pressure slides to our east and winds shift to the southeast and south. Lots of sunshine again today making for a good opportunity to get out and enjoy the early spring weather with highs in the low to mid 50's. On Sunday we have a chance to see a few scattered showers in the area as moisture advances northeastward from the Plains. As this system moves in during the early part of Sunday some wet snow may also be present. Later, as temperatures warm, any precipitation would switch over to rain. Right now chances favor the Coulee Region, but rainfall totals looks light. It will be a a bit cloudier that day with highs in the upper 40's. The combination of warmer temperatures, sunshine and some rain will lead to additional issues with flooding, especially ice dams. Be sure to monitor the latest forecasts for any updates.
The upper flow will again return to the northwest, bringing another cool down into the region early next week. Yet another large high is forecast to move in from Canada, bringing a return to dry and sunny weather next Monday and Tuesday. The work week does start off a bit chilly, highs Monday will be close to 40. Tuesday will be milder with highs back in the mid 40's.
The warming trend continues through the rest of the work week. Temperatures return to the 50's by Wednesday. Clouds will begin to increase that day ahead of the next system developing to our southwest. Wet weather looks to return to the area on Thursday and continue into Friday. Temperatures look quite mild Thursday with highs in the upper 50's for the Chippewa Valley. Some spots in the Coulee Region may top out in the low 60's. A cool down is expected for the final day of the work week with highs back in the mid 40's.
