WLDY-WJBL NEWS 9-9-20 Eau Claire only topped out at 54° on Tuesday, crushing the previous cold-high temperature for the date by 6 degrees! We are likely to set another record cold-high on Wednesday before we start to see temperatures slowly return to near average in the coming days. As far as rain goes, we largely missed out during the day as showers stayed farther south, closer to I-90. Tonight they will remain mostly in the counties south of Eau Claire, though a few stray ones may sneak into the Chippewa Valley. Otherwise it will stay cloudy as we drop back down through the 40′s. Meanwhile far northern areas will be vulnerable to the first frost of the season where the clouds will be thin enough to allow temperatures to dip down into the 30′s.

LADYSMITH – The Rusk County Sheriff’s Office this (Wednesday) morning at about 6:25, were advised of a car that went through the ditch and into the field on the West side of the road on Highway 27 near Ambrose Road, Ladysmith. A Rusk County Deputy, Ladysmith ambulance and the Ladysmith Fire Department were called to the scene. According to the report, the County Deputy advised he located the scene of the accident and the vehicle returned to the road and left the scene. The deputy located evidence of a vehicle being operated North bound on Highway 27, losing control and entering the left ditch and going into a farm field. The tracks in the field show this vehicle turned around and drove back onto highway 27. The vehicle that entered the ditch will likely have some front end damage from striking the ditch but no other property adjacent to the road was damaged.
