      Today's Forecast

      Today's Forecast Image
      • 38°
      • 32°

      A complicated weather system is approaching our region and will cross through Southern Wisconsin today and Tuesday. Pure rain will move in by mid-late morning with colder air infiltrating from the north, allowing freezing rain to develop in our northern areas during the afternoon. Farther south, heavy rain and even some rumbles of thunder are possible. There might be a brief lull this evening before another slug of moisture overspreads the area. Once again, freezing rain will be most likely north, with the freezing line possibly creeping as far south as Madison. Just 1° makes the difference between rain and freezing rain, a critical detail we'll be tracking closely.

      Pure rain will regain authority Tuesday morning as warmer air pushes into the region. Then, the sweeping cold front will move through during the afternoon and early evening, allowing for one last push of rain mixed with freezing rain. Up to 1/3" of ice is possible for far N&NW spots where significant glazing will make for dangerous travel. Power outages are even possible. Farther south, up 1-2" of rain will fall causing flooding concerns for low-lying areas and along waterways. Don't drive through water-covered roads since you won't know how deep it is!
