Weather Summary for Upper Mississippi River Valley
National Weather Service La Crosse WI
314 PM CDT Thu Mar 22 2018
Mostly sunny skies were seen across much of the region today, as
high pressure was in control. Afternoon temperatures ranged from
the upper 30s in northern Wisconsin to the 40s elsewhere, though a
few spots had reached 50 degrees.
Another quiet night is on tap for tonight, with mostly clear skies
in Wisconsin and a few clouds west of the Mississippi River. Low
temperatures will range from the teens in central Wisconsin, to
the upper 20s where more clouds will be seen.
Much of the day will remain dry on Friday, with high temperatures 
in the 40s to lower 50s. The main story then becomes 
precipitation moving into the area Friday afternoon. Mainly rain
will be seen during the late afternoon and early evening hours,
generally along and west of the Mississippi River. Snow will then
mix in by late evening, before switching to all snow around
midnight. Total snowfall accumulations in the heaviest band will 
be in the 4 to 8 inch range, with locally higher amounts possible.
This band is currently expected to be located from southeast 
Minnesota into northeast Iowa and far southwest Wisconsin, but 
slight shifts could occur, leading to changing snowfall amounts.
Prepare for slick and snow-covered roads. The snow will move out
of the area Saturday afternoon.
