      It's Friday and if you're starting the Memorial Day weekend early, you're going to want to plan for above average temperatures when you pack your bags. Highs today will be in mid to upper 80s, with highs in the low to mid 90s Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.

      Otherwise, showers and thunderstorms are in the forecast today. This morning, activity will mainly be confined to areas to the NW of La Crosse with most of the Coulee Region remaining dry. Partly cloudy skies are expected with thunderstorms redeveloping in the mid to late afternoon. This activity will move SE through the evening with a few strong to severe storms possible. Skies will clear from the NW to SE overnight.

      Although the weekend is on track to be dry, you're going to need to take precautions to stay safe from the sun and heat. If you plan to spend time outside with friends and family, or are going to the NCAA Division 3 Track and Field meet, make sure you bring plenty of water with you and take breaks when you need them.  Remember to slather on the sunscreen, reapply it often, and don't leave the house without a hat and sunglasses. The hot weather will continue on Memorial Day with isolated showers and thunderstorms possible.

      For more details on the forecast, tune into News 19 from 4:30-7am and at 5pm, 6pm, and 10pm. And be sure to download the WXOW Weather App for weather updates when you're on the go!
