      Warmer weather arrives for the weekend, and it looks fairly dry, too, especially for Saturday. Plenty of sunshine will help warm us into the 80s, and it will be slightly humid. This is what we expect for August, though we haven't had a lot of this weather so far this year. Sunday starts sunny as well and likely is the warmer of the two days, but will be partly cloudy by the afternoon and have a slight chance for a few showers or thunderstorms, with likely chances overnight into Monday morning. Scattered showers will continue Monday, with several breaks possible. During these breaks there could be some partial clearing, and it will take one of these breaks to align with the timing of the eclipse midday for us to be able to see it in western Wisconsin. By midweek we will clear out and once again cool down with highs only in the upper 70s. -Stormtracker 18 Weather Meteorologist Matt Schaefer
