Outlook: Rain today, while heat and humidity are expected soon

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Summer officially began last Friday, and it will feel like it this week. Toward the end of the week, temperatures will push 90 degrees, and with the humidity, it will feel warmer.

Monday will be wet at times with scattered showers and thunderstorms, as a broad surface low and upper-level trough moves over the region. Some thunderstorms could be strong with hail and gusty winds, but overall, the severe weather threat is low. Monday night will be partly cloudy and less humid with lows in the 50s.

Tuesday and Wednesday will be comfortable with sunshine and highs in the lower 80s. Tuesday will be breezy, and there is a small chance of a small shower popping up near you. Thursday will be more humid, and with a weak stationary front positioned over the Midwest, scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible. Rain is less likely on Friday.

The Storm Prediction Center has placed the Eau Claire area under a “marginal” risk for severe weather for Monday, which means isolated severe storms are possible.

This weekend will be very warm and humid with highs around 90 and lows around 70. While it might be uncomfortable, it will be great weather for corn and other crops. Rain cannot be ruled out this weekend, but the threat is low at this time. Better chances for showers and thunderstorms are on tap for next week.
