Key Takeaways

  • Cooler & breezy Thursday
  • A few scattered showers are possible Friday - more likely West of Madison
  • A few more showers Saturday; turning warmer

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - The cold front that brought a few pop-up showers yesterday brings in the northerly wind today! Highs are expected to drop into the upper 70s. High-pressure will keep the sunshine around for today before more cloud cover and showers arrive Friday. Scattered showers spill into Wisconsin tomorrow due to a surge of warm air aloft combined with an upper-level wave. While not a washout, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on the weather app!

As high-pressure moves East, warmer air & moisture will advance into southern Wisconsin. A weak low-pressure system will generate showers and a few thunderstorms on Saturday.

Temperatures will climb into the lower 80s over the weekend.

An upper level ridge is positioned across the mountain West next week. Meanwhile, an upper-level trough will cling to the Eastern U.S. for part of the week. With southern Wisconsin sandwiched between these two features, much of the weather forecast appears calm - minus a few isolated showers.

Highs will remain in the mid - upper 70s next week.

Allergy levels will be on the increase in the weeks ahead.
