WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Enjoy the sunshine and dry weather while it lasts, because the weekend once again will feature some changes in the Wisconsin River Valley. In vast contrast to the past couple of weekends in July that were hot, humid, and included storms. this go-around will be a bit different. July has been a wetter than average month in both Wausau and Rhinelander. It will go down as the 14th wettest for Wausau, while Rhinelander will wind up tied for the 2nd wettest with 9.31″, matching 1911 and falling short of the record set in the year 2000 of 10.24″.
Sunshine mixing with clouds as the day goes along on Saturday. Scattered showers are possible in the Northwoods during the afternoon. That risk of showers and perhaps a storm shifts across the rest of the region for Saturday night and during the day on Sunday. While having an umbrella handy on Sunday will be a good idea, it is not going to be total washout. On the flip side, there will not be as much sunshine on Sunday with highs both days in the 70s.
