MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - A First Alert Day has been issued for Monday. A storm system is moving out of the Plains and into our area. It will continue to amplify as it moves into our area. Anytime after 3 am, we’re expecting to see showers and thunderstorms move into our western counties first. By midmorning the heaviest line of showers and storms is expected to pass through Madison and by early evening, most of the precipitation will have exited to the east.

What’s Coming Up...

For your Monday morning commute expect wet roads and slower traffic. Rain totals are looking to be at least 1/2″ for everyone, then localized areas could see 1-2″, locally 3+”. This could be a boost in helping our ongoing drought. Temperatures on Monday will stay cool with highs only getting up to the mid-60s.

Looking Ahead...

We’ll see some dramatic improvements for Tuesday with plenty of sun and mild temperatures in the mid-70s. A similar day is in store for Wednesday with temperatures rising to the lower 80s. And then we’ll keep our eyes on Thursday for the potential of some wet weather.
