MADISON (WKOW) - Enjoy today's mild conditions because frigid air heads our way by Friday.
A strong cold front moves in from the north that will cause a significant pattern change to end the week.
Then, a late-weekend system brings us a round of light snow. There is a chance for more snow early next week, though that storm system may stay too far south.
Lots of sunshine to start the day with clouds building in this afternoon. A few flurries are possible along the cold front by the evening.
Temps stay well-above average today in the mid to upper 30s with wind chills in the 20s. That's because there will be a breeze from the west with gusts up to 30 mph.
Clearing skies late with much colder conditions. Temps slip to the single digits with wind chills near zero.
Conditions stay cold but bright with a light wind from the northwest. Temps only recover to the mid teens in the afternoon.
We wake up to temps near zero and sub-zero wind chills. That makes it the coldest we've been all season long.
Temps get to the low 20s in the afternoon with clouds building.
Light snow develops in the evening and overnight.
More light snow expected, mainly in the morning hours, potentially giving us an inch or two of snow. We'll talk specific snow totals later. Temps will be seasonal in the upper 20s.
Mid 20s with another chance of snow, but that system may stay too far south to impact us. Stay tuned for updates.
