LATEST FORECAST DISCUSSION
Meteorologist: Monica Ott
*SCATTERED RAIN CHANCES THROUGH THE MORNING THEN DRIER AND LESS HUMID THE REST OF THE WEEK*
After picking up INCHES of rain in the last day or two, scattered showers continue falling. Water levels on area rivers and streams will continue to rise, with minor to moderate flooding forecast in the coming days.
After the rain, things should improve through the day. A slight chance for a shower will remain into the afternoon, otherwise it will continue to be mostly cloudy. This will keep temperatures a bit cooler, with highs in the mid 70's. Dew points are forecast to drop down into the 50's and that will help make it feel more comfortable.
The remainder of the work week will bring some nicer weather. An area of high pressure will again build to our north and northeast right into this next weekend. This will lead to near seasonable temperatures and should help keep any additional rain threats to our south. Wednesday will be partly to mostly sunny with more sunshine forecast through Thursday. Highs will be in the low 80's and for the official start of summer, which is right on par. Temperatures may cool a few degrees by Friday and into the start of the weekend as some extra clouds may be in the area. We will be watching the progress of another low and upper trough to our south as it lifts up towards the Great Lakes. Again, current thinking keeps the majority of this system out of our area, though some of our southern counties may get a bit of rain during this time. Here in the Chippewa Valley we look to see more clouds than sun Friday into Saturday with highs in the upper 70's while warming to around 80 on Sunday.
