Breezy and Mild Today
Tuesday, December 7 is a First Alert Weather Day
MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Mild temperatures will continue across the region today. Highs are expected in the lower 50s in most cases. Wind will be fairly strong today out of the northwest at 10 to 15 mph with gusts as high as 30 mph. Cooler air will begin to make its way southward out of Canada today. We will get a taste of that tomorrow, but even more so on Saturday as high temperatures dip into the 30s.
NBC15 meteorologists have declared Tuesday (December 7) a First Alert Weather Day. We are currently keeping our eye on model output that indicates a significant storm system developing over the Panhandle region of Texas Monday. This system will move rapidly northeastward toward Chicago on Tuesday and bring accumulating snowfall to the area Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night. There is still a lot of time between now and then and we will be refining the forecast as we get closer to Tuesday. The ingredients will be in place for a significant accumulation, but there are still questions regarding the exact track of storm.
Today: Mostly sunny, breezy and mild. High: 50. Wind: Northwest 10-15 gusting to 30.
Tonight: Increasing clouds with a chance of rain/snow late. Low: 35. Wind: Becoming SE 5.
Friday: Partly sunny with a chance of an early morning shower. High: 45.
Saturday: Mostly sunny and cooler. High: 37
