MADISON (WKOW) - After a round of rain moved through last night, active weather sticks around in the forecast.
As weather system number one moved through, the trailing cold front will linger in northern Illinois keeping us in an unsettled pattern.
Another low pressure system will generate Friday allowing widespread rain to develop heading into the weekend.
Mostly cloudy skies today with patchy fog and mist and temps in the upper 40s.
Light rain and more patchy fog are possible tonight, depending on how far south our frontal boundary gets. Temps will dip to the mid 30s.
Partly sunny to mostly cloudy on Friday with milder temps in the mid 50s.
As our next weather system moves in, rain will develop at night setting the stage for a soggy Saturday.
Widespread rain and even a few rumbles of thunder will impact the start of the weekend.
The best chance for a few stronger storms would be counties touching the IL/ border.
Temps will vary cooler farther north in the 40s, central and southern areas should get into the 50s as a warm front moves in later in the day.
On the back side of the system, more rain is expected Saturday night and Sunday morning before scattered, light rain moves out in the afternoon.
We'll pick up around an inch of rain with this weekend's system. Since the ground is nearly saturated already, low-lying areas may see some standing water.
