  • Clouds clearing this afternoon
  • FIRST ALERT DAY: Thursday
  • Slightly cooler into the weekend

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - A cold front moved through earlier this morning but didn’t have much of an impact on temperatures. Breezy westerly winds behind the front and drier air will work to break up clouds a bit this afternoon. Partly sunny skies will be seen through the afternoon. More sunshine is expected Wednesday before some clouds fill in for the afternoon.

Another round of rain and snow showers moves in for Thursday. This is an interesting area of low pressure that will move in from the south. It looks like this will start out as rain or a wintry mix, and eventually switch to snow as cooler air moves in. Your First Alert Team has declared an Alert Day for Thursday, as we have growing confidence in multiple inches of snow accumulation, as well as icy road conditions as temperatures drop during the day.

There are still a lot of questions with this system, so stay tuned to the forecast.

Dry and quiet weather will be seen through the end of the week. Cooler temperatures will be seen on both Friday and Saturday.

Today: Becoming mostly sunny. High: 39. Wind: W 10-15.

Tonight: Mostly clear. Low: 23. Wind: W 5-10.

Wednesday: Mostly sunny in the morning, then increasing clouds. High: 42.

Thursday: Cloudy with rain/snow likely. High: 35.
