Sunny day, chance of storms this evening

(WEAU) -- Today we'll be watching a weak cold front across Southern Canada moving southward into Minnesota and eventually Northern Wisconsin. This will bring better chances for afternoon and evening storms in the Chippewa Valley. The morning hours should be dry. If you have any outdoor activities planned for today you may want to get them done before noon. I'm not expecting a wash out at all. But there could be some isolated showers here and there.

We'll also get some sunshine early in the day and then again in the evening too, leading to highs again in the 80s. Temperatures still expected slightly above average for this time of year but a few degrees cooler than Saturday. The severe threat with Sunday's storms looks to be low at this time, but some heavy rainfall could be likely in any storms.

The storms should start to clear out overnight tonight leaving a few clouds behind. Temperatures will again be mild and near average. Winds will be from the northwest light if not calm at times.

The pattern remains a bit stormy into early next week as the front only slowly moves further south Monday and Tuesday. This will provide more scattered storm chances, especially on Monday. The movement of the front will have to be watched, but for now it looks to slowly push south Tuesday and Wednesday with diminishing rain chances. Temperatures will also be gradually cooling during this time period, though overall we should still end up being pretty close to average. Temperatures look to rebound somewhat as we head into next weekend as well as more rain chances.
