High pressure is back in control of our weather and that means more dry weather along with a return to below average temperatures!
This month has been one of extremes...we've seen highs in the 60s and highs in the 80s...but looking ahead to the next several days, it looks fairly consistent and nice!
Much cooler today. This morning, our temperatures were 20° cooler than just 24 hours ago! And, interestingly, our daytime highs for the next few days will top out where our lows early Tuesday bottomed out. The sky is clear and although we may see a few clouds move in this afternoon, it will be a mainly sunny day.
High temperatures will stay in the upper 70s and around 80 so it will be cooler than the start of the week and it will FEEL much cooler with a lot lower humidity. Our dewpoints Monday and Tuesday were in the 70s! Today, they will stay in the 50s. And, no really muggy days in the coming week (which should be good news given all the complaints I heard from the heat and humidity earlier this week!)
Temperatures will cool into the 50s again tonight with light winds and mostly clear skies. Another lovely day tomorrow with low humidity, sunshine and highs close to 80. There is a chance for some showers and storms to move in as early as tomorrow night impacting at least the morning Friday with some scattered rain. We actually need the rain as July is below average in Eau Claire by almost an inch! This will not be a complete soaker, but at least there is some rain in the near future.
Actually a couple of more chances for rain into the weekend as a front begins to take shape in the Plains, gradually moving east into the weekend. Similar to many of the storms we have seen this summer, the weekend will be more wet than dry, but there is the chance for some showers at times. The weekend will also feature warmer temperatures at least to start with highs back into the 80s Saturday. Cooler air works back in Sunday sticking around through early next week keeping high temperatures in the 70s.
