      We have melted a lot of snow over the past week, now snow only remains where there were larger piles and in very shady spots. Temperatures have been warming all week, too, with highs in the 50s, but it's been almost 6 months- 176 days, in fact, since Eau Claire last had a high of at least 60°, which Eau Claire did hit late Saturday afternoon. Sunday will be even warmer by a couple degrees. With the runoff from the melting snow, area streams and rivers have begun to rise, and should crest early next week. So far, no local rivers are expected to rise to flood stage, but further south the Trempealeau River near Dodge is expected to exceed flood stage by about a foot, and there is a flood warning in effect from Sunday through Thursday. Temperatures are expected to peak Monday, with highs in the middle 60s before a cold front moves through on Tuesday. That front may bring a few showers, though a bulk of the rain looks to miss to the south. Another slight chance on Thursday but neither day will bring a lot of rain, which is good news for the rivers, giving time for the runoff to move on downstream. -Stormtracker 18 Weather Meteorologist Matt Schaefer
