The next chance for possible precipitation is Sunday night through Monday afternoon. A maximum in positive vorticity is located over southern Minnesota. Positive vorticity will be advected towards Madison on Monday morning, increasing chances of ascent in the area, and therefore possible precipitation. The chance of precipitation will end late Monday afternoon as the trough propagates towards the east. Subsidence will follow once more, due to negative vorticity advection. Yet another high pressure system will enter the region early Tuesday, bringing partly cloudy skies and temperature highs in the mid 30's
