Scattered storms return for Sunday

By  | 

MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) All good things must come to an end and this time it is our stretch of sunny, dry, and warm weather. Sunday will put us back at a "1-Low Impact" on our Weather Impact Scale. This means just general shower and storm activity is expected.

Two systems are pushing in our direction. A cut-off Low Pressure system will drift up from the southeast while a Cold Front approaches from the west. Look for clouds to continue increasing Saturday night with rain likely holding off until sunrise. The exception would be right along the stateline where a few raindrops are possible tonight.

Showers with a few embedded thunderstorms are possible at any time Sunday, but the best coverage looks to be in the morning and evening. Rain totals will be on the lighter side of things with most places picking up between a tenth and quarter of an inch by Monday morning.

A lingering shower is possible on Monday as a calm weather returns Tuesday. A bigger weathermaker arrives on Wednesday with a good chance of showers and storms once again. On the backside of this system unseasonably cool air will filter in. This could have highs by the second half of the week only into the 60s with overnight lows into the 40s!

Don't forget you can track the rain right from your smartphone! The NBC15 Weather Authority App is available now on all mobile devices in the Google Play Store for Android users or the App Store for iOS users.
