The sunny skies and mild temperatures are now in the past. Up next...a typical spring pattern with "April showers" and cool and consistent temperatures. Clouds continue to increase as the next storm system pushes into our area. Highs this afternoon will top out around 50° which is almost 10° cooler than yesterday! Light to moderate rain enters the region this afternoon and overall, we are looking at wet weather sticking around through the end of the week (or at least a chance for rain through Friday).
The heaviest rain is expecting tonight into tomorrow. The extra clouds and rain overnight will help keep our temperatures on the milder side, remaining in the 40s with a breezy wind out of the southeast at 10-15 miles per hour. You will definitely want the umbrella throughout the day Thursday with rain showers possible most of the day. And, while you are at it, make sure to have the sweatshirt or warmer raincoat as highs will struggle to reach the 50s.
Still a chance for rain on Friday, but overall it looks like just a slight chance. Highs remain below average in the 50s. Saturday looks to be nice in between storm systems. We'll enjoy some sunshine and milder temperatures before the next storm system will impact the region. Sunday will continue to see below average temperatures still in the 50s along with the return on some light rain. It still looks like there will not be any major issues for the Color Run in Eau Claire, but we will keep an eye on the skies for you! Next week looks to start out soggy too and even cooler with daytime highs falling into the 40s.
