MADISON (WKOW) - More active weather returns this week, but it arrives after the holiday!
A weak area of low pressure over Canada and a trailing cold front will pass through the Upper Midwest today.
We'll see cloudy skies because of this and maybe even a stray flurry or spinkle with temps in the low 40s.
As the main front passes through, we may see a few sprinkles with clearing conditions after midnight. Temps dip to the upper 20s.
ST. PATRICK'S DAY
High pressure moves in clearing the clouds allowing lots of sunshine and temps slightly above average in the mid to upper 40s.
An area of low pressure develops over the Central Plains bringing a brief mix early in the morning before transitioning to scattered rain showers through the day. Temps will be in the low 40s.
Another area of low pressure arrives bringing more scattered rain with temps in the mid 40s.
The main area of low pressure moves through and on its backside, we filter in colder air and some scattered, light snow with minor accumulations possible.
This will mainly impact us in the morning hours. Temps will be colder in the 30s with a breeze picking up.
By the end of the week, we will have picked up 0.5 to 1.5" of liquid precipitation so minor flooding is possible.
Another dry weekend shaping up with lots of sunshine Saturday in the mid 30s and low 40s with increasing clouds Sunday.
