Wedding Weather:)

Hello, I've looked up the history for my local weather and it looks like precipitation is average .11inches. We are hoping and praying to have an outdoor Wedding reception on 9/16/17. We'd have a tent of course, but wondering what you think the weather could be like for temperature and precipitation. I'm located in La Crosse, WI (Western boarder of WI, on the Mississippi River). Thank you much for your time and knowledge:)
