Heavy rain caused flash flooding this morning in northern Clark county in the Highway 29 corridor with 3 to 5 inches of rain falling. More heavy rain fell this afternoon and evening as storms intensified.
Those storms also produced damaging wind gusts in eastern Eau Claire county as well as much of Clark and Jackson counties this evening. There even was a Tornado Warning for eastern Eau Claire county in the 4pm hour, and there were damage reports near where circulation was detected by radar. NWS and Eau Claire County Emergency Management will survey the damage tomorrow to determine if it came from a tornado or straight line wind gusts.
That's just a classification, because the truth is both produce wind speeds capable of causing a lot of damage.
Storms have since exited western Wisconsin, though some scattered showers will remain through the evening, though will end overnight.
After that, cooler air and much lower dew points move in. In fact, temperatures should fall to the mid/upper 50s overnight as dew points fall to the mid 50s.
Although a few showers are possible tomorrow, most of the day will be between partly cloudy and mostly sunny with comfortable dew points in the 50s and highs near 80. Thursday will also be comfortable, but a bit warmer with highs in the mid 80s.
Heat and humidity return to Western Wisconsin with highs climbing near 90 by Friday with showers and thunderstorms possible on and off through the weekend with highs near or above 90 and dew points near or above 70.
This means it could feel like 95 to 100+ this weekend, especially on Saturday. Humidity remains but temperatures look closer to average by the end of next week.
