Intervals of clouds and sunshine are expected as we kick off the weekend after waking up to some fog early on. There won’t be much to worry about for those of you heading out to the Downtown Eau Claire Fall Festival or the final day of Oktoberfest in Chippewa Falls! Forecast guidance continues to indicate the potential for a very isolated, pop-up sprinkle or shower this afternoon, but much of the area should remain dry. Light northwest winds will keep temperatures right around average in the low 70s. A mostly clear sky takes us into tonight with yet another possibility for patchy fog developing late. Lows will be a bit cooler with most locations dropping into the 40s.

Sunday is looking drier, sunnier, but also cooler. Highs will mainly be in the lower-70s, with 60s farther north. This next week though, summer-like warmth will return as start to get back in southerly flow. Temperatures will begin to climb into the mid to upper-70s as soon as Monday. For the middle part of the week, a few 80-degree days are possible, before temperatures are looking to cool off a little bit again by the end of the week. That’s also when moisture levels will start to increase, bringing back the chance for some showers and thunderstorms. It is still far out though, and already multiple times this summer, models called for a wetter pattern that never materialized, so we will keep an eye on it!
