MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -April is officially here and unfortunately; it doesn’t bring much change from our active weather pattern. As temperatures warm, this means more storm chances than snow chances in the weeks ahead. A First Alert Day is in place for Tuesday as we brace for another round of strong to severe storms. It’s a time to stay weather aware as all types of severe weather will be on the table. This threat is a bit more conditional than last week, but still remains high for the area. Beyond this, the second half of the week looks very windy as a few shower chances remain.

What’s Coming Up...

Cloudy skies tonight with periods of rain and perhaps a rumble of thunder. Rain totals of a tenth to a quarter of an inch possible. Winds will be light out of the south 5-10 mph. Tuesday will be stormy with multiple rounds of storms possible. The best chance of severe weather will be into the evening and overnight hours. Highs will be into the 50s but continue to climb into the 60s Wednesday night. Winds will be gusty out of the east 15-20 gusting to 35 mph.

Looking Ahead...

Early storms Wednesday followed by strong winds. Highs into the 60s with southerly winds of 25-30 mph gusting to 40 mph. Mostly cloudy Thursday and Friday with continued gusty winds. Small shower chances into Easter weekend with above normal temperatures.
