      • 72°
      • 55°

      Expect a cool stretch of weather today through early next week with highs ranging from the middle 60s to the lower 70s. Eau Claire's average high for June 23rd is 81 degrees, so for some, it is a tough forecast to swallow. Others are loving the conditions! After a sunny start, plan on a partly to mostly cloudy sky this afternoon with highs in the lower 70s. Scattered showers and sprinkles will pop up in the region, caused by the growing instability from cold air aloft and low-level heating. Nothing significant will fall in our area, so don't worry about your outdoor plans. Tonight, the sky will be partly cloudy with lows around 50. Expect highs in the middle 60s on Saturday and Sunday with scattered showers, possibly a thunderstorm, in the afternoons. Some locations could receive over a tenth of an inch of rain each day, while others will receive little to nothing. Next week, temperatures will gradually warm. By the end of the week, highs will be near 80 with lows around 60. At this time, Wednesday appears to be the wettest day of the work week with widespread showers and thunderstorms in the region, developing with a surface low passing through the Upper Midwest. Have a wonderful Friday and weekend! Stormtracker 18 Weather Chief Meteorologist Nick Grunseth
