FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Partly Cloudy skies this evening. -Erik Dean

Patchy fog possible in the morning hours.

Forecast High Temperatures
DISCUSSION: 
Overall it was not a bad start to the week. Highs today were in the upper 70s – low 80s. With the low humidity, it was very comfortable to say the least. Radar definitely got a break today, but for the 2nd half of the work-week, the radar will be getting a nice little workout. Which is good, we really need the rain. As a matter of fact, we are still well below normal for the year. 3.3″ to be exact in La Crosse, with Eau Claire checking in at 2.45″ below normal. The rain we will see over the next few days definitely won’t be a drought buster by any means, but at this point we’ll take what we can get. Rumbles of thunder won’t be out of the question either especially Thursday, Friday & Saturday, so that’s something we will have to keep an eye on in the First Alert Weather Center.

8-DAY FORECAST

Our average high for this time of year is 84°, and you can see that we’ll be way below that, especially this weekend. The rain chances will really ramp up as well. Like I said, not enough to put a massive dent in the drought, but some places could get a good soaking.

Enjoy your Monday
