I hope everyone had a chance to get out and enjoy the nice weather today. Mostly sunny skies today have warmed up temperature will above average into the upper 60's and even lower 70's for some areas. Big changes are on the way for the second half of the weekend and next work week.
Clouds will gradually increase in the afternoon and evening as a storm system that's been hanging out over the Rockies the past few days finally starts heading our way. Breezy winds will continue tonight and into early Sunday morning. As well as some light scattered rain showers after midnight. Good news for anyone headed to Jazz Fest tonight in downtown Eau Claire. I'd still have an umbrella handy but it looks to stay dry until the early morning hours Sunday. Cool temps. overnight in the mid to upper 40's. Hopefully some rain across the area will reduce the fire danger across western Wisconsin.
Periods of rain and even some thunder again likely on Sunday as the main low pressure system works up into our region. The rain could be moderate to heavy at times. Looks like a midday break in the action is possible on Sunday before more rain moves in again for later in the day and into Sunday evening.
Colder air moves in on Monday. Winds will be very gusty behind this system. Expect mostly cloudy skies and the possibility for some more scattered showers. Temperatures will only top out in the lower to mid 40's for much of the day. Temperatures could be chilly enough Monday night into Tuesday morning for a bit of a wintry mix. We'll still contending with more clouds on Tuesday with cool and breezy conditions. A slight chance of some lingering showers are possible as well that day.
Temperatures look to remain below average through the rest of the work week with highs only in the 40's. A persistent and chilly northwest flow will keep temperatures on the cool side and winds breezy out of the northwest. For now the second half of the week looks dry but a mix of sun and clouds. Temperatures will begin to improve heading into next weekend as well as the return of some sunshine.
Have a great rest of the weekend and stay dry tomorrow!
