Clouds will remain with us tonight, while a scattering of rain and wet snow showers slide through parts of the area from the northwest. Breezes will also remain, as temperatures slowly drop down through the 30's.
The next few days will continue to feel more like March than April. Tuesday will be another chilly day.. a large upper trough will cover the Upper Midwest, bringing more clouds and scattered rain and wet snow showers. I wouldn't be surprised if some places to the north and east of Eau Claire catch a light coating of accumulation over the next 24 hours, especially over hillier terrain. Outside of any precipitation, it will be windy again, with gusts up to 30 mph, along with highs only in the lower 40's .. nearly twenty degrees colder than average.
The upper trough will slowly begin to slide east and by Wednesday, drier air will be taking hold, allowing for the return of partial sunshine. Still, it will be breezy and chilly with highs only in the mid 40's. By Thursday and Friday, the coolest of the weather will be behind us, but it will take some time to get those temperatures back up closer to average. Both Thursday and Friday will feature some sunshine, with readings climbing into the lower 50's.
The weekend looks dry at this point, while some sunshine will continue. Highs will climb a bit more, into the mid and upper 50's. There will be a few weather systems to watch in the coming days, but for now they look to pass by to our south. Beyond this, temperatures going into the final week of April look to remain near or just below average.
