**Winter Storm Watch for northern and western Siouxland from Wednesday evening through Friday morning**
SIOUX CITY (KTIV) – We continued our nice streak of weather with highs today in the 70s and this was easily the nicest of the days we have coming our way for a while.
Our weather will stay quiet tonight with lows in the low 40s.
We’ll see more clouds around tomorrow and maybe a slight chance of an isolated rain shower with highs in the low 60s.
Rain chances become better Tuesday night and that rain will continue through the day on Wednesday and some thunderstorms will be possible as well with highs much cooler in the mid 40s.
Some of that rain will start to turn over to some snow Wednesday night in northern and western Siouxland and that’s when the snow could start accumulating in those areas which is the reason for the Winter Storm Watch for those areas.
Those same locations will continue to see snow on Thursday while Sioux City and points to the south and east will probably still be seeing rain for much of the day on Thursday.
By Thursday evening, some snow will start to mix in with the rain for the rest of us with snow becoming more likely into Thursday night although the intensity of the snow by that time shouldn’t be as impressive.
That’s the reason central and eastern Siouxland will not be looking at nearly as much snow accumulation with this system as opposed to those areas to the northwest.
We could still see some lingering light snow Friday morning with highs on Friday in the upper 30s and it will be quite windy from Wednesday through Friday.
Rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches will make the flooding situation worse in many locations.
Temperatures will start to rebound over the weekend with highs in the mid 40s on Saturday and near 50 on Sunday with partly cloudy skies.
