MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Got outdoor plans for today? It might be worth having a backup plan - especially near the State Line! Low-pressure passes to our South while showers swing into Wisconsin throughout the afternoon and overnight.

Clouds are building back into the area this Sunday morning. That has kept lows a few degrees higher than Saturday morning. As low-pressure moves by today, scattered showers spill over the State Line by afternoon. Rain becomes more widespread during the evening hours. Rainfall totals could top an inch or more from Madison South to the IL/WI line. Rain showers linger into early Monday before the system moves off to the East. During this timeframe, easterly winds will pick up - gusting upwards of 25 mph. Although a wind advisory hasn’t been issued for our area, they have been put in place along the shore of Lake Michigan. High waves could lead to lakeshore flooding.

Back home, the clouds stick around after the rain departs tomorrow. Highs only make it into the upper 40s - near 50°.

Sunshine is back by Tuesday with highs in the lower - mid 50s.

A passing trough will bring back clouds for the middle of the week. Rain chances are back in southern Wisconsin Wednesday night into Thursday & Friday. There are still differences between models on the arrival and position of this system. Stay tuned!
