MADISON (WKOW) – March came in like a lion and is exiting like a lamb with quiet, cool conditions. However, a warm up is on the way.
Temps dip to the mid to upper 20s overnight with increasing clouds and a couple isolated flurries possible Monday morning before rebounding to the upper 40s in the afternoon.
A weak clipper system will move through the upper Midwest allowing for light rain to develop Monday night with a little more scattered, light rain on Tuesday. Temps stay in the upper 40s.
We jump into the low to mid 50s on Wednesday with increasing clouds. A low pressure system will pass through Illinois, possibly clipping our state-line communities with some Wednesday PM and overnight rain, but computer models are trending drier for us.
Thursday, temps will be in the mid to upper 40s with mid to upper 50s by Friday and 60s for the weekend, some of the warmest temps of the year so far!
The Climate Prediction Center has issued a high chance for at or above average temperatures through mid-April, with average highs this time of year around 50° and average lows around 30°.
