Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

MADISON (WKOW) - Temps will get into the 80s for the third day in a row, making it our hottest streak since early August.

Areas of low pressure are developing in the Central Plains passing north of our Wisconsin.

This set up keeps our flow from the south, allowing warm and humid conditions to continue with some pop-up storm chances.

Today, we'll have a sun-cloud mix with a UV index on the "very high" side, so keep the sunblock handy or you can expect a sunburn in as little as 20 minutes.

High temps will be just as warm as yesterday in the mid 80s.

A few showers and storms will pop up, mainly late-day.

Tonight, it'll be muggy and mild with increasing clouds.

More of the same tomorrow with temps in the low 80s and a few afternoon and evening storms.

Showers and storms will be more widespread Thursday and could develop earlier in the morning. Temps will be a little milder in the mid 70s, though it'll still be muggy.

Rain and storm chances end Thursday night as our main cold front moves through.

We'll pick up 3/4" to an inch of rain widespread with hot spots getting more than that. Flooding won't be a concern until Thursday as storm chances become more widespread.

This passing cold front will cause a cooldown Friday through the weekend in the upper 60s and low 70s with overnight lows dipping the upper 40s to mid 50s.

Forecast rain through Thursday night
