Rain, rain, and more rain. We have a very wet forecast at hand over the next three days. Overnight clouds were rolling in from the southwest ahead of an area of low pressure in the Central Great Plains. As this system lifts northeast into Lake Superior it will spread showers and thunderstorms into the Coulee Region. Although a few sprinkles are possible this morning, the bulk of the rainfall will hold off until the afternoon. After it arrives, prepare yourself for periods of heavy rainfall. This could cause localized street flooding and even some minor rises along area streams and rivers. Through Saturday, anywhere from 1 to 3+ inches of rain is possible. These totals could be higher if the storms repeatedly hit the same location. For comparison, entire month of August usually gets just shy of 4.3 inches of rain in La Crosse. Showers and thunderstorms will continue on Friday, and although times of heavy rainfall are still likely, the greatest accumulation should occur today and tonight. Showers look to linger into Saturday but with any luck will clear out later in the day.  We'll be drying out for Sunday but right now Labor Day has a pretty good chance to be wet, at least in the morning. -Stormtracker 19 Meteorologist Madeline Sky
