A cool and quiet start to Monday under a clear sky with plenty of sunshine ahead throughout the day! Temperatures this morning are starting out in the upper 20s to low 40s with the mildest temps to the south of Eau Claire. Clear skies across Western Wisconsin and the trend will continue through the middle of the week!
It is hard to believe that April is winding down and May is just around the corner! April is typically known for its showers, but it appears we'll see a "rain free" end to the month with some "May showers" possible in the first couple of days.
The sunglasses will certainly come in handy today as we see plenty of bright sunshine. High pressure is in control keeping the dry and quiet weather pattern in place. This will be productive sun, helping us to warm up into the middle to upper 60s this afternoon. Winds will be light, from the north, only at about 5-10 miles per hour.
A weak front and low pressure system will move this way from the Plains tonight into tomorrow. This will have little impact on our weather pattern, other than adding a few more clouds into the forecast for Tuesday. Right now we have some extremely dry air in place (also the reason for little to no rain actually falling for most of the area late last week) so rain is unlikely for tomorrow although temperatures will actually be a couple of degrees warmer, closer to 70! And, we will continue to see above average temperatures right into the start of May!
High pressure will be back in control of our weather pattern for Wednesday and Thursday meaning a return to dry and mostly sunny weather. Temperatures will be hovering right around 70 for the middle to end of the week.
The next chance for any rain will come just in time for the start of May. A weak front will be moving into the region on Friday from the west. Temperatures will be the warmest of the work week topping out in the middle 70s! But, there is at least a slight chance for some rain, and maybe even a couple of rumbles of thunder. And, it looks like we could see at least a slight chance for an additional stray shower or thunderstorm this weekend either Saturday, Sunday or both. But, it will not be a washout by any means with just a slight possibility for more (much needed) rainfall. Along with the chance for showers, we will see a mostly sunny sky with temperatures remaining above average in the 70s. There is still a bit of uncertainty with the timing and track of the wet weather for the weekend (as we are still a ways out) so we will continue to monitor and make adjustments as needed.
