MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Happy Saturday! It’s back to reality. The warm November weather we enjoyed at the end of the workweek is gone. High temperatures on today and tomorrow will only be near or just above 40 degrees. At least, our rain and snow chances continue to go down. For the most part, this weekend is going to be dry. There might be a slight chance for a rain and/or snow shower on Sunday. Our next big weather maker probably won’t arrive until Tuesday, though.

This morning is mostly clear and chilly. Temperatures are in the 20s across a good chunk of the area. Luckily, the wind is not very strong this morning, so the wind chill factor is not much of a problem this morning. If you’re heading out the door first thing this morning, make sure to give yourself some extra time because you’re going to have to defrost your car.

This afternoon will be mostly sunny and seasonably chilly. High temperatures will be near or just above 40 degrees. One of the best parts about today will be the light wind. We could use a break from the wind after the last couple of days.
