Temperatures have been chilly across Siouxland, but it has been dry. Highs in the 30s are considered below normal for late March, but certainly nothing out of the expected cycle of ups and downs we see this time of year.
We are forecasting winds from the northwest to decrease during the overnight as temperatures fall into the lower and middle 20s. We start Sunday with bright sunshine and temperatures should rebound into the middle 50s…a nice end to the weekend.
The work week ahead does feature some rain chances. First, we’ll be watching a small disturance coming from the northwest Monday afternoon and evening. The moisture with this system appears to be under .25″.
A large system will be moving into the central plains on Wednesday. We’ll continue to watch the track of this system as rainfall could be in the .50″ to 1″ range. Certainly that more more moisture than we’ve seen in quite sometime, but the runoff issues will certainly be better than what we see a few weeks ago.
We are seeing good signs of a significant warming trend by late in the week. We could be well into the 60s perhaps close to 70 toward the end of the 7 day forecast!
