A 20 percent chance of snow after 5pm. Increasing clouds, with a high near 15. Wind chill values as low as -17. West wind 6 to 8 mph becoming southwest in the afternoon.
Still bitterly cold in the Driftless. Tomorrow will give us a high of 26 degrees, which while not awful, is also not ideal. Dress warmly!
Fishing has been pretty good for the winter on days that it hasn't been too blasted cold to tolerate being outside. On the sunnier days we have seen surface activity mid day as fish feed on winter stoneflies and small black midges. On the cloudier days the water temperature takes a bit longer to warm up so the best fishing is subsurface on leeches, streamers, and larger nymphs fished deep or swung through the deep pools.
This weekend is the ski jump tournament in Westby which means county P at the headwaters of the Timber Coulee will be closed tonight through Saturday night.
