Rain chances on Father's Day along with a chill

By  | 

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -- By now you, hopefully, know Father's Day is Sunday! With many people planning to spend time outside with Dad, the big question remains if the weather will cooperate. The answer, don't cancel any outdoor plans but have a backup plan or at least be willing to move it later in the day.

Rain chances will certainly be around on Sunday, especially before the Noon time hour. The good news is that the rain will be more scattered than what we had Saturday night. As we move into Sunday afternoon, most of the rain should push out. There is even the possibly of a few peaks of sunshine before sunset!

Don't forget the jacket when out and about Sunday, and not just for protection from the rain. High temperatures are only expected to be in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Father's Day 2019 has the potential to be a Top 10 coldest on record across the area!

In case you were wondering, Father's days was first celebrated on June 18th, 1910 in the state of Washington. However, it was not until 1972 that the day honoring fathers became a nationwide holiday in the United States. This comes 58 years after President Woodrow Wilson made Mother's Day official.
