MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Showers and thunderstorms over the Plains will bring a few higher-level clouds to the region early today. Highs are expected to climb into the middle to upper 80s. SW winds will be breezy at times - ushering in the warm temperatures.

Showers and storms are likely over the central Plains tonight and few of those may clip the southern part of Wisconsin overnight. Medium-range guidance suggests this jet will drop South Saturday morning - sparing southern Wisconsin from widespread showers/storms.

Saturday is an Alert Day at NBC15. Strong/severe storms are possible during the late afternoon/evening hours. A cold front will march across the state - from NW to SE. Strong storms will be supported by a feed of low-level moisture and warmth. The strongest storms could contain hail and gusty winds. Isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out. Frontal arrival is estimated during the early afternoon - NW of Madison. The front may arrive into the Capital Region during the evening. Stay weather aware & up-to-date as changes are likely.

Cooler and more seasonable weather follows the frontal boundary. Highs drop into the upper 70s and lower 80s into next week.
