Temperatures have a chance to climb above average early next week

We’re now in the middle of November, which sees the greatest change in temperature, on average, than any other month of the year. The average high on November 1st is 50 degrees, and that drops 17 degrees down to 33 on November 30. The average low drops from 32 down to 17.

Of course, we’ve been stuck below average for what feels like forever. In fact, Eau Claire has not had the averaged daily temperature above average since October 21 which was 24 days ago!

Highs today warmed close to 30 degrees thanks to plenty of sunshine, and we’ll be even warmer tomorrow with more sunshine and a high in the mid to perhaps upper 30s.

We’ll have better chances for warmer air Saturday but that comes with increased cloud cover and a chance for light snow to start in late evening and continue overnight. By Sunday morning, the precipitation will be changing over to a mix and then light rain before it ends in the afternoon. Minor accumulations will cause a slight deterioration in road conditions Sunday morning, but warmer temps make it easier for road crews to take care of the streets.

Temps will warm again next week but small chances for precipitation continue from time to time through the week.
