Outlook for Friday through Sunday. It will be partly cloudy on Friday with the skies clearing up mid-day Saturday. After that, the weekend should be sunny. Highs will be in the lower 50s and lows will be in the lower 30s for Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, the low will be in the 40s.  [CONFIDENCE: MEDIUM]

Forecast Discussion

A low pressure system located to the North of Wisconsin in Ontario caused a cold front to recently move through Wisconsin causing the recent drop in temperatures. Strong winds follow the cold front. Cold air advection will continue from the North which will cause temperatures to be in the lower 60s in the near future. Skies should clear behind the cold front until another low pressure system moves southeast bringing Madison some rain and light breeze. There is a broad ridge over the most of the western United States causing clear skies and warmer temperatures.
