SIOUX CITY (KTIV) – The warmer stretch of weather we were enjoying came to an end today with afternoon temperatures only in the upper 40s and lower 50s across the region.
Not helping matter was the fact that the wind was blowing out of the northwest at 15 to 25 miles per hour along with some areas of drizzle.
That drizzle is nothing compared to what is coming our way.
Scattered showers will be developing by Monday afternoon although these will stay relatively light.
Those showers will be continuing into Monday night with rain then becoming heavier as the day goes along on Tuesday.
Some thunderstorms could also develop, especially later in the day Tuesday, with a few of those possibly being rather strong.
Heavy rain is going to fall across much of the area with 1 to 2 inches falling across much of Siouxland through Monday and Tuesday.
Tuesday will also bring us an easterly wind at 20-35 miles per hour keeping highs only in the upper 50s.
That system will be moving out Tuesday night leaving us with a much better day on Wednesday when we’ll hit the low 70s for highs under partly cloudy skies.
Thunderstorms will become possible again on Thursday with highs staying a bit warmer in the mid 70s.
Friday and Saturday are looking like very nice days at this point with highs in the low to mid 70s under partly cloudy skies.
Some showers could develop by Saturday night with a few of those lingering into the first half of Sunday.
Highs on Sunday will be in the low 70s.
