MADISON (WKOW) — We’ll get a break from this wet stretch on Thursday, but it’ll be short-lived.
A trough will slip to the east tonight allowing for weak high pressure to settle in on Thursday. This will bring ample sunshine and comfortable highs in the mid 70s, marking the first day without measurable rain since last Saturday!
Another wave of low pressure will approach from the Northern Plains on Friday, triggering another round of showers and embedded t-storms, likely starting in the morning. This batch should persist through the afternoon before ending in the evening.
Thereafter, our next two rain chances appear to be mainly nighttime events, good timing with regard to outdoor activities. “Dry time” should dominate the weekend’s daylight hours with a rain opportunity coming Saturday night, then again Monday night.
It’s worth noting a few showers might linger into Sunday morning, so keep that in mind if you have an early tee time on Sunday.
The weekend will also be a little warmer with highs near 80°, right around average for this time of year.
