You can finally put the umbrella away (for now)

After a very soggy week, there are a couple days of dry weather on the way. There have been scattered showers and thunderstorms moving across western Wisconsin this afternoon, but most of the thunderstorm activity this afternoon and evening has been confined to Polk, Barron, and Rusk Counties.


There is a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms continuing overnight, but most of us should stay dry. There will be plenty of clouds for everyone, though. There is also the chance for patchy fog to develop late tonight and continue into the early morning hours.

Sunday will start cloudy with a very slight chance of showers, but clouds will begin to decrease as the day goes on. By midday, we should have partly cloudy skies, and by late afternoon, we will have abundant sunshine. Temperatures will also increase with highs in the upper 70s expected on Sunday afternoon.

Clear skies will continue overnight Sunday into Monday, and it will be a gorgeous start to the week. High temperatures will be in the low 80s on Monday, which is warmer than much of the past several weeks. We have only hit 80 one other time since August 20.


Tuesday and Wednesday will continue the warm trend with highs in the low 80s. Humidity will also begin to increase, and by Tuesday, it will be very humid. Starting Tuesday, we will also have the chance for showers and thunderstorms.

The chance for storms will continue through midweek. Be sure to check with us for more information about this week’s storm chances over the next few days.
