      Rain started Thursday afternoon and came in waves of light to briefly moderate rates. We didn't get much rainfall at all, only five hundredths of an inch at the airport Thursday, and similar totals Friday, though Friday's rain was more widespread in areas east of Eau Claire while Thursday it was heavier west. All in all, many places haven't reached 1/4" totals, meaning our deficit will continue. Don't get me wrong- any little bit helps and the rain falling at lighter rates means all of it was able to soak into the ground. We dry up as rain comes to an end, and there's just a tiny chance of an isolated shower or two Saturday afternoon, but the chance falls even below our "slight" category. There will be a mix of clouds and sun tomorrow, and it'll be warm and a bit humid again. With more sunshine expected Sunday, highs should return to near average in the low to mid 80s, with dew points continuing to rise to the mid 60s. A weak cold front moves through on Monday, and it will only be able to force a few scattered showers. The humidity will drop again after that front, and there's another weak front for Wednesday with again just slight chances. Looks like we are going to continue being drier than average. -Stormtracker 18 Weather Meteorologist Matt Schaefer
