MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - A First Alert Day has been declared for Saturday as temperatures tumbled into the 20s & 30s overnight. The first widespread frost & freeze for southern Wisconsin is underway. Temperatures rise above-freezing by mid-morning.

Sunshine filters in with some cloud cover during the afternoon. Highs climb into the lower 50s.

A developing low-pressure system will produce scattered showers and storms for much of the nation’s midsection late Saturday into Sunday. Shower bands expand northward towards Wisconsin late Sunday into Monday. Most of the rain will be confined to the State Line, but showers are possible as far North as Madison. This is especially so on Monday as wrap around showers spread even farther northward.

Rain comes to a close late Monday. Highs during this period will top out in the lower - mid 50s.

Another deepening trough will move through the central U.S. during the middle of next week. As of Saturday morning, this system has trended farther South. Although there may be a chance of a shower on Wednesday, the chances have been reduced. We’ll keep an eye on it!
