MADISON (WKOW) - We're in a cool pattern but will see improvements heading through the weekend.
The jet stream, comprised of fast-moving winds in the upper levels of the atmosphere, divides air masses.
It has dipped south of our region, causing our area to tap into cooler air from Canada.
By the end of the weekend, the jet flattens meaning our air mass moves in from the Pacific, allowing milder conditions heading into next week.
Isolated shower threat lingers into today and this afternoon down towards the Illinois border. This system will add clouds to most of our viewing area.
Mostly cloudy skies continue Saturday, maybe with some late-day clearing and similar temps in the mid-50s.
Sunday looks nice with a sun-cloud mix and a high of 60°.
Partly sunny conditions next Monday with rain developing by the afternoon. Temps stay seasonal in the low 60s.
More scattered rain on Tuesday as another system moves through with warmer temps in the mid 60s. As the main front moves through in the evening and at night, a few storms may develop
