Early spring weather in early winter this weekend

December 15, 2018

After a long period of colder than normal temperatures, Madison residents won’t mind having a weekend where the highs will be more like early spring than early winter.

The National Weather Service said highs are expected to be in the mid-40s Saturday and Sunday under sunny skies, weather that’s normally seen in mid-March.

There’s no rain or snow in the forecast through Thursday, so the chance of having snow for the holiday is getting slimmer, since Madison has no snow cover now.
