Monday starts off with temperatures in the lower 70s along with some cloud cover. A weak cold front was seen over the Dakotas and Minnesota on Sunday afternoon. That front will make its way into Wisconsin late tonight. A stray shower or two are possible Monday morning NW of Madison. As the day wears on, temperatures will climb into the upper 80s. Showers and storms may fire in the afternoon along the frontal boundary. There will be plenty of instability to fuel storms. However, with the weak forcing, severe potential is limited. That said, the strongest storms could produce gusty winds and hail.
