      Today's Forecast Image
      • 89°
      • 60°

      Temperatures will rise close to 90 degrees today, and it will be humid and breezy too. The "make or break" will be high-level cloud cover drifting over the region, which may limit highs to the upper 80s. The last time Eau Claire hit 90 was September 23rd of last year. Late this afternoon, a few showers and thunderstorms could pop up in west central Wisconsin, while showers and thunderstorms are more likely this evening and tonight. The rain will be caused by a strong, upper-level wave and cold front moving across the Upper Midwest. Some areas could receive more than a half inch of rain. Thankfully, the severe weather threat is low due to mediocre wind shear in the atmosphere, but it is not zero. Of course, we will keep you posted on air, online, and through the weather app. This weekend and Memorial Day, it will be less humid with dewpoints in the upper 50s and lower 60s. But, it will be very warm with highs around 90 degrees. It will be one of the warmest Memorial Day's on record for Eau Claire. The record high for Memorial Day is 96 degrees, which occurred in 1939. Have a fantastic day, and stay cool! Stormtracker 18 Weather Chief Meteorologist Nick Grunseth
