An unusual blast of cold air has prompted a frost advisory for much of the state this morning. The National Weather Service says the frost advisory is in effect until seven this morning for all of southern and central Wisconsin. N-W-S says temperatures will drop into the lower 30s across most of the region, with central Wisconsin temps likely to drop into the mid and upper 20s. The unusual frost patterns comes at a bad time for many farmers and gardeners, endangering plants and vegetables in bloom.

Governor Scott Walker gave a moving commencement speech at a Concordia University graduation ceremony yesterday in Mequon. In the speech, Governor Walker tells grads to be "fearless" and to enjoy life's journey... adding that there are great opportunities to thrive in the state. According to his staff, it's the first commencement speech given by Governor Walker.

The Madison School Board, along with Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke, unanimously voted in favor of labor negotiations with its teachers. Despite Governor Scott Walker's 2011 law, Burke says she supports the negotiations to bargaining for the 2015-2016 school year contract. The law is currently being reviewed by the state Supreme Court, but Republicans were quick to criticize Burke, saying her vote is a violation of the law, and a "payoff" to unions and teachers that endorsed her.
