5:49 am
kickoff around 2:30. the temperature then is 53 degrees with that sun set time before 5:00 p.m. in madison. temperatures will start descending, cool fourth quarter with temperatures in the 40's. hopefully the badgers pull out another win. milwaukee's current conditions look like this. it's 34 degrees at the moment in the historic third ward. our camera showing clear skies above the home bridge. not much wind to speak of in the city. it's either calm or light in all the observations i've checked let's go statewide. it's even colder. in southeastern wisconsin we've had 20's sprinkled in. the coldest pocket i've seen in the central part of the state. stevens point, 21 degrees currently. it's 20's to 30's starting off and it's a frosty morning across the area. no clouds out there right now. so with the clear skies, light winds and a fairly chilly air mass overhead we dropped into the 20's to low to mid 30's across the area and certainly the coldest this morning we've
5:50 am
area. the forecast as we look ahead to the afternoon, these are the numbers that will be pretty common across the area, about 52-54 degrees. the winds will be primarily southwest at about 8-16 miles per hour. some extra layers or a jacket they're certainly needed as we go through this morning. future temps, these are lagging behind by a couple degrees but this gives you a good idea, by 1:00 or 2:00 this afternoon, most areas will be in the lower 50's and we'll add on a couple our day time highs. if you're headed out this evening you'll want the coat or jacket and close to 40 degrees by 8:00 p.m. overnight tonight not quite as cold and we keep the winds up and most areas stay above freezing. as you look ahead in the workweek forecast, if you're hoping for rain the best bet would be thursday night into probably sometime on friday as the storm system moves through and will deliver a pretty good punch of cold air.
