This story’s title seems a bit optimistic, right? We’re just trying to find something good in this cold air. Lnelle Kinner’s pictures of the morning frost in Clayton do look cool, at least. Thanks for sending them in! You can email pictures to [email protected] or [email protected]
After yesterday’s record coldest high temperature and last night’s patchy frost as lows dipped into the low to mid 30s, it did felt a bit better today thanks to the sunshine.
Still, high temperatures only made it just five degrees above today’s record coldest high temperature for Eau Claire of 56 degrees set in 1924. It was that close to being the 3rd day in a row setting a record coldest high temperature.
It will be cold again tonight, with lows again in the low to mid 30s. A Frost Advisory is in effect from 11pm until 9am for most of Western Wisconsin, and a Freeze Warning is in place for counties north of highway 8.
With those colder temperatures, another night of both patchy frost and fog is likely, and it makes you want to just snuggle up with a blanket or someone you love.
High temperatures tomorrow will end up being a little bit warmer than today as we start sunny, though clouds will start to move in during the afternoon.
Thankfully, those clouds are ahead of a warm front that will move in Friday night. Temperatures will only fall to the 50s by Saturday morning though there will be a steady light rain and a slight chance for a few embedded thunderstorms. Rain will start to taper off Saturday afternoon, though sprinkles and light rain remain possible through the evening.
Sunday will feel much better with highs climbing back to where they should be this time of the year into the mid 70s. Plenty of sunshine is expected, too, Sunday through much of next week as highs eventually climb into the upper 70s. Even a little bit of humidity is possible towards the middle of next week with dew points near or just above 60 during the days.
