Gloomy weather continues tonight & Saturday

Sunday is the better half of the weekend!

May 19, 2017 -

The gloomy rain continues tonight and Saturday, but I have a feeling you'll like Sunday's forecast!

Tonight, rain continues as a low pressure center down in the southern Plains shoots up into Siouxland. Expect more widespread showers by midnight, lingering through the morning. With the thick cloud cover, rain, and breezy winds expect lows to stay steady in the mid 40's. Winds will gust to 25 mph out of the ENE.

Tomorrow will be pretty similar to today. On-and-off showers continue while skies remain gloomy and winds breezy. By the time all is said and done Sunday morning, expect a widespread 1-2" of rain in the bucket! Because we'll be on the colder, backside of the system throughout, I am not expecting a severe threat, though a rumble of thunder or two is possible. Highs on Saturday will only get to 50 degrees, about 25-30 degrees below normal!

Sunday will be much nicer! Drier air moves in behind the low pressure center, bringing partly cloudy skies. Temperatures will still be below normal, but a bit warmer in the mid 60's.

Monday we bring in our next chance for rain, this time with some thunder possible too. Storms will likely start in the evening and last through the overnight. Skies remain partly cloudy on Monday with highs closer to normal in the lower 70's.

Showers and storms could linger through the early part of Tuesday. Temperatures will be a bit cooler on the backside of this low, highs getting to about 60 degrees under partly cloudy skies.

We dry out Wednesday with mostly sunny skies and highs in the upper 60's.

A ridge, or shape in the jet stream that influences a warming pattern, moves into Siouxland on Thursday. That helps temperatures get in to the upper 70's with sunshine... much more May-like!

Highs stay warm near 80 degrees on Friday under mostly sunny skies.
