Soggy Weather Pattern Setting Up

Light Rain/Snow Chance Next Couple Days

March 20, 2017 - A week of cloudy and often wet weather is setting up over Siouxland.

The soggy week will kick off with a couple of fast-moving upper-air disturbances.

Each of these will bring a chance for a light rain/snow mix to Siouxland.

Up to 0.5" to 1.0" of snow will be possible for some, but not all, of Siouxland Tuesday morning. The most likely location for this snow would be in eastern Nebraska, and could possibly reach Sioux City if the disturbance tracks far enough north. But if temperatures stay warmer than 34°, this precipitation could also stay all-rain. Regardless, any snow will melt during the day due to a high of 45 tomorrow.

The second disturbance will arrive Wednesday morning with another chance of a light rain/snow mix. Once again, up to 0.5" of slushy accumulation will be possible. Wednesday's high will be 39.

Thursday will be warm enough where our chance of precipitation will be all in the form of rain. The high will reach 49.

A stronger weather system will move into Siouxland Friday and Saturday. This next system will have the potential to drop 1" of more of rain, and there may even be thunderstorms Friday.

Sunday will be cloudy, but we'll get a break from the measurable rain, at least for a day.

Another chance of showers and thunderstorms follows Monday.

Highs late this week and early next week will range from the upper 40s to upper 50s--close to normal for late March.
