Rain to taper, wind to pick up

MADISON (WKOW) — After a wet start to the week, a nagging breeze is about to take over.

We’ll a keep a few showers in the forecast through about midnight as a cold front approaches from the west. It’ll clear to the east after midnight, effectively ending our rain chances.

Winds will shift to the west behind the cold front and strengthen during the day on Tuesday. Sustained winds at 10-20 mph can be expected with gusts approaching 30 mph. Since there hasn’t been much wind lately, it might actually feel “windy” to some. Temps will top out in the mid to upper 70s, but the breeze will make it feel cooler.

Projected wind gusts on Tuesday

Another disturbance will swing through on Wednesday but this one won’t have any moisture to work with. It’ll merely drop temps a handful of degrees and keep the breeze stirring, gusting to 30 mph for a second straight day.

You’ll notice the wind again on Thursday but this time it’ll come from the southwest, allowing afternoon temps to reach 80° or so. While a cold front might spark a shower or two later Thursday into Thursday night, it’s not a guarantee you’ll see rain.
