MADISON (WKOW) - Tropical Depression Cristobal is moving out, but more rain will still move in.

Former tropical storm Cristobal has now exited the state and moves towards Lake Superior.

The system was highly unusual and broke multiple records, which you can read about here.

Another, weaker area of low pressure is developing on the backside of Cristobal which will cause rain chances to increase later Wednesday.

Rain totals associated with Cristobal

A sun-cloud mix to start with increasing clouds by your lunch hour and scattered showers and a few rumbles of thunder returning.

Rain won't be as heavy, with hot spots only getting up to a half inch. Most areas will get a quarter inch or less.

Temps will be milder in the upper 70s by the early afternoon, with falling temps the rest of the day. We'll be in the low to mid 60s by dinnertime with a brisk wind out of the northwest gusting as high as 30 mph.

Rain chances end by late evening, then clouds clear and temps cool as high pressure moves in from the Central Plains.

Weather set up today

Temps dip to the mid 50s by early Thursday before rebounding to the mid 70s in the afternoon with plenty of sunshine and a wind out of the west at 10-15 mph.

Mid 70s again on Friday with partly sunny skies, though isolated showers may return in the afternoon or evening ahead of another cold front that will drop temps even further for the weekend.

Overnight lows will dip to the upper 40s with weekend high temps in the upper 60s and low 70s.
