Early scattered storms wrap up, then it gets muggy

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00
Muggy Meter High Scale NAMNEST - 3 Day Now

Just like Wednesday evening, storms Thursday morning stayed north of Eau Claire. A cluster of rain makers moved through early Thursday morning. These will rain out through about 9 a.m. We'll see a gradual clearing through the afternoon, but there are more rain chances through the end of the week.

Thursday will be mostly to partly cloudy with high temperatures approaching the low 80's. Cloud cover may keep temperatures a few degrees lower again, but it will definitely feel sticky as dew points head into the mid to upper 60's.

Strong storms will develop late Thursday in northern Minnesota. As that line progresses southward overnight, it may bring us a little more rain Friday morning. Northern counties in western Wisconsin have the best chance to see showers Friday. Amounts will be underwhelming and at best a few tenths of an inch.

A second round of storms will be possible late Friday evening and a few storms could be strong. There is a level 1 risk for isolated severe thunderstorms through 7 a.m. Saturday morning. This broken line of storms will develop along a cold front that will try to finally bring us a little rain, but amounts look like 1/4'' to 1/2'' at best.

Storms will wrap up early Saturday then it looks like we'll be dry again for another week. Temperatures will fall below average and stay cooler in the low 70's next week.
