MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) – We finish the work week sunny and dry! And after yesterday’s wet weather, the responsible system moved east, leaving us with a northwest flow and highs around 70, which is average for this time of year.

Nighttime clouds will increase as our next storm systems move out of the Plains. This storm will be relatively small, but we will still monitor it for the possibility of stronger storms later today. The first round of showers and thunderstorms will move in Saturday morning, primarily affecting our western counties. At the end of the morning, the precipitation decreases. Don’t expect much of a cloud break before the second line of showers and storms develops over south-central Wisconsin. Models indicate this could fill in and bring stronger storms to Jefferson, Green and Walworth counties later today. Highs will be in the 70s.

What’s coming…

Sunday will be the pick of the weekend with plenty of sunshine. It will be a milder day with our highs only reaching the upper 60s to near 70. Sunshine will start the day Monday, but expect increased clouds later in the day. A steady southerly flow will help push our temperatures up into the mid 70s.

Looking forward…

On Tuesday, clouds will return followed by showers and possible thunderstorms. There are still discrepancies in timing and impact, but we will continue to monitor any changes as we get closer.
