Our warming trend continued Thursday with highs hitting 90 degrees in several Siouxland cities, including Sioux City.
It was the first time Sioux City got to 90 degrees since October 3!
Now the focus shifts to the chance for thunderstorms over the next few days.
Some storms formed a little before 8 pm in southern Siouxland with a couple of them becoming severe.
The first round looks to develop in southern Siouxland after 8 PM and spread northward.
The main threat for severe weather will be south of Highway 18 with gusty winds and large hail possible.
Some storms could linger into the early hours of our Friday.
Things quiet during midday Friday before storms look to redevelop in the late afternoon to evening hours.
Those could become quite strong with all modes of severe weather possible, including tornadoes.
The highest risk for severe weather is in northeast Nebraska though all of us could still see the wicked storms.
Thunderstorms likely continue into the overnight hours.
Again, we quiet briefly Saturday morning before more thunderstorms become possible in the afternoon, especially in eastern Siouxland.
Two to four inches of rain will be possible for portions of Siouxland by the time the rain ends Sunday.
