Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

MADISON (WKOW) - Grab your sunglasses and sunblock, we have a bright trend ahead.

SET UP
A cold front advances from the north which will cause a stray shower chance late-day.

On the backside of this boundary, we cool off through the weekend before summery temps return next week.

Cold front could spark a stray shower late-day

TODAY
Plenty of sunshine with a UV index of 8, which is 'very high.' This means a sunburn is possible within 20-25 minutes.

Between 3-6 pm a stray shower is possible as a cold front passes through the area. But, most stay completely dry.

TONIGHT
An isolated shower is possible as the cold front moves in from Lake Michigan. Highest chance for a spotty shower to develop will be far west and southwest.
