**Flood Watch for most of Siouxland from Wednesday morning into Thursday**
SIOUX CITY (KTIV) – The return of the sunshine has been nice to see the past couple of days, but now clouds will take back over.
A storm system is going to bring Siouxland a lot of rain over the next three days and maybe even a bit of snow by Thursday.
It could begin tonight with areas of freezing drizzle possible.
We’ll have to watch to make sure areas aren’t slick early Tuesday morning, but the good news is that temperatures will be on the rise so by the time a lot of us are heading off to work and school that temperature could be close to 32 degrees and it will continue to rise through the rest of the morning.
By the afternoon, we’ll see areas of light rain with some fog developing as well as highs go up to around 40 degrees.
Rain is expected to get heavier Tuesday night into Wednesday with a chance of some thunderstorms on Wednesday as well.
Periods of moderate to heavy rain could continue into Wednesday night.
Then as colder air moves in on Thursday some snow could mix in with the rain by the afternoon.
Western Siouxland will stand a chance of some light snow accumulation on Thursday.
All of us will have a chance of heavy rain and that’s why most of Siouxland will be in a Flood Watch from Wednesday morning through Thursday evening for a lot of 1 to 2-inch rainfall amounts with some locations possibly receiving 3 inches.
Wind will be part of this whole story as well.
Wednesday will become breezy with the gustiest winds moving in on Thursday when we could see gusts over 40 miles per hour.
We do start to dry out on Friday but it will stay breezy with highs in the mid 30s.
We’ll even get to keep the dry weather around for the weekend with highs in the low 40s on both Saturday and Sunday.
