WLDY-WJBL NEWS 9-8-20 An area of showers will stretch from portions of the Plains northeastward into the Upper Midwest the next few days, squeezed in between a very large ridge centered over Western Canada and a stalled out front to our south. We will be in north and northeast flow, keeping us very cool for the first half of September. The next few days will bring out the jackets, as we are likely to set new record cold-high temperatures with readings 20-25 degrees below average. Tuesday’s record cold-high for Eau Claire is 60°, set in 1946 and Wednesday’s is 58° from 1954. Both of these will likely be broken by several degrees, factoring in the northerly flow, clouds and more showers. Our forecast highs in the low 50′s are more typical of the last week of October! Rainfall may not be constant, but chances will remain high both days, while placement is still a bit uncertain, areas from Eau Claire on south will have the highest chances to see the rain over the next 48 hours. Places that stay in these rain bands consistently will stand to see 0.50-1.00″ before drier air arrives sometime Wednesday night.
