      • 90°
      • 70°

      Friday we made a run at the warmest day of the year despite it being the Autumnal Equinox, or first day of fall. It was only the 5th time of the year that Eau Claire hit 90° or warmer and the second warmest of the year. We will continue our hot and humid pattern Saturday once again with plenty of sunshine and a southerly breeze we look to warm to near 90°. Saturday's record is the same as Friday's at 93° so once again we'll be close. A strong cold front is stalled to our west and will push only a bit east on Sunday. A few more clouds may keep us in the upper 80s but it'll still be quite humid and oppressive. Finally Monday and Tuesday will see that cold front move through, with humidity lasting through Monday night. Showers and thunderstorms are likely Monday and Monday night, with a chance on Tuesday as rain will be more scattered and exiting later in the day. This leaves us much cooler, with high temperatures by the end of next week cooler than tonight's low. -Stormtracker 18 Weather Meteorologist Matt Schaefer

      Sign up here to receive daily weather forecasts and/or severe weather emails from the Storm Tracker 18 weather team. The severe weather email you receive will contain the alert headlines (i.e. Tornado Watch for Eau Claire County, WI. in effect from May 19 at 7:12 PM CDT until May 19 at 9:00 PM CDT).
