WLDY-WJBL NEWS 5-19-20 Mostly cloudy skies will persist today. We remain in a strong easterly flow, trapped between a storm over the Ohio Valley. Winds will be lighter than yesterday but still from the east to northeast. Tonight will drop to around 50. The upper level pattern features ridging across the central and eastern part of the country which would generally promote widespread warmth this time of year. The problem for us locally is a large upper low to our southeast that has now become cutoff and trapped within this pattern. This system in part will help to keep the clouds around Tuesday, before moving further to the southeast into the midweek and stalling. Eventually it will again lift to the north, indirectly impacting our weather again late this week. Until that happens, we can expect a few nicer days. Clouds will finally start to clear out Tuesday night, leading to a sunny and warmer day Wednesday. Temperatures have a chance to rise a bit above average, into the mid 70’s. Thursday will start off sunny, but we may start to see some clouds return through the afternoon. It will stay dry though, with highs again in the mid 70’s. MADISON, Wis.
