Today's Forecast

The weather today will be like the last couple of days - morning sunshine to afternoon clouds, followed by brief showers and thunderstorms.  An area of low pressure is stationed in eastern Ontario, which is far away from the Chippewa Valley.  However, upper-level waves of energy, often called "short waves," are rotating counterclockwise around the low pressure center.  These short waves cause lifting in the atmosphere, and with the warming of the day, showers and thunderstorms can quickly develop.  Saturday appears to be the next quiet day with high pressure at the main controls, then we will be in an active pattern once again Sunday and the first half of next week, meaning periods of showers and thunderstorms.  At least temperatures are comfortable, and dewpoints will stay low enough over the next few days that mugginess will not be a problem.  Have a great day!    Stormtracker 18 Weather Chief Meteorologist Nick Grunseth
