Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

MADISON (WKOW) - Summery temps are back ahead of the official start of the new season this weekend.

SET UP
The jet stream, comprised of fast-moving winds in the upper levels of the atmosphere, divides air masses. We're tapping into a weak heat dome allowing temps to jump.

Warm upper level flow from the SW

By the weekend, a front moves in from the Northern Plains causing storm chances to increase.

A little warmer than yesterday with lots of sunshine and highs in the mid 80s, though humidity levels stay quite low.
