Outdoor Father’s Day plans may need a “rain check”

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Friday, we saw some strong to severe storms roll through the Chippewa Valley.  Some of those storms caused damage to trees and provided a spectacular light show in the early evening hours!

Hourly Father’s Day Forecast

Saturday, we saw a bit of a break from rain, with the exception of a passing shower or two.  Temperatures were slightly below average, and that trend will continue on through the weekend.  Overnight Saturday there will be an increasing chance for showers and a possible rumble or two of thunder.

For your Father’s Day plans you may want to pack an umbrella, especially if you are planning anything early on.  Showers are expected between 7 a.m. and noon, with rain diminishing later on into the evening.

While things may be drying out in the evening, grilling outside may still have to take a “rain check,” as a passing shower cannot be ruled out.  Trace amounts of rainfall are possible.  Highs Sunday are expected to sit around the mid to upper 60’s, as opposed to the typical mid to upper 70’s that we normally see this time of year.  We certainly will not be approaching the record of 96 that was set back in 1995.

 

Sunday night, cloud cover will clear which will lead to some patchy fog that may affect your commute Monday morning. Monday we will get back into the mid 70’s and those temperatures will stay there for the majority of the work week. There’s also a slight chance for a passing shower or two in the afternoon. Another chance of rain starts late Tuesday night that lasts into the weekend.
