MADISON (WKOW) — Most of southern Wisconsin has been rain-free for about a week, a trend that’s about to end.
High pressure has finally slipped to the east, allowing for thickening clouds and scattered sprinkles to develop. As a wave of low pressure approaches from Missouri overnight, sprinkles will turn into legitimate rain showers and become more numerous. These should continue through at least midday on Monday, and you might even hear some morning thunder east of Dane County.
Showers should persist through Monday evening but they’ll likely become fewer and farther between, even as a cold front approaches from the west.
Rainfall totals will be highest in the east where some spots could approach an inch by evening. Meanwhile, some areas west of Dane County might struggle to measure one-tenth of an inch.
Beyond Monday, the final workweek of August appears fairly problem-free, though you’ll have to battle the breeze on a couple of days. Find out which days in your 27 Storm Track extended forecast!
