Most of our accumulating rain ended by this afternoon, but mist and drizzle continued into the evening. Rain from yesterday and today combined added up to around 1/4” to 1/2” for most in western Wisconsin, which thankfully isn’t that much and will allow our high rivers to continue to fall.
High temperatures again were near 20 degrees below average, but a warming trend will start tomorrow along with the return of at least a few peeks of sunshine.
Light scattered shower chances return tonight, but not much rainfall is expected. Rain will be exiting tomorrow morning, though a few light showers could pop up in the afternoon. The cloud cover will be eroding, and hopefully we’ll get a little sun by the late afternoon. We need a little sun to reach the forecast highs in the upper 50s, but the good news is sunshine becomes likely by Friday which should push highs into the 60s.
A weak front moves through Friday night, with small rain chances confined mainly between sunset and sunrise. Clouds will decrease again after that front Saturday, and warmer air returns.
It’ll be our first chance at above average highs since last Thursday. Saturday’s average high temperature is 66 for Eau Claire.
A few showers again are possible on Sunday morning with partial afternoon clearing and more rain chances return next week with temperatures staying below average.
