MADISON (WKOW) - After eight cloudy days in a row, sunshine finally returns to kick off the week.
We saw a half inch to an inch and a half of rain widespread, with locally heavier amounts.
This has caused our rivers to run high. Flood warnings are in effect for the Fox, Rock, Wisconsin, and Yellow Rivers.
They will all crest in the minor flood stage by Wednesday and slowly recede the rest of the week.
High pressure moves into the Upper Midwest clearing our clouds and allowing lots of sunshine with temps in the low 50s and lighter winds.
Overnight lows dip to the upper 20s.
Clouds increase later Tuesday with cooler temps in the mid 40s.
Partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies for Wednesday with highs in the upper 40s to around 50°.
A weak weather system moves in from the west, possibly sparking an isolated shower or two late Wednesday.
Mid 50s for Thursday with partly sunny to mostly cloudy conditions.
A few showers may develop late-day Friday with warmer temps in the upper 50s.
As the front sweeps through Friday night, expect widespread showers.
These will linger into early Saturday before dry conditions return the rest of the weekend with temps in the 50s.
