MADISON (WKOW) - A Wind Advisory has been issued for southern and portions of east-central Wisconsin for most of the day Saturday.

Sustained winds around 15-20 mph are likely, with gusts up to 45 mph.
Highest winds will be late morning through the afternoon. Gusty winds could blow around unsecured objects or damage temporary structures. Tree limbs could be blown down and a few power outages may result.
Winds will decrease as the sun goes down this evening.
Otherwise, a system will push in from the west Saturday bringing mostly rain showers off and on. Can't rule out a few flurries in the morning.
