Showers return to Siouxland with slim chance for severe weather mixed in

Weather Forecasts

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – This week may have started off on the more pleasant side with sunshine, but winds and clouds are slowly taking over the area ahead of more rain.

As a low-pressure system moves across the southern portion of the United States, inclement weather will move into Siouxland.

Strong to severe storms are possible along with heavy rain at times. The worst of the severe weather will remain south, far outside the Siouxland area. Despite the heightened severe risk staying towards the south, out of the Siouxland area, a strong to severe storm or two cannot be ruled out in southwestern Siouxland throughout the overnight hours and early Wednesday morning.

The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has placed southwestern Siouxland under a marginal risk, or level one risk, for strong to severe storms. The main threats for the Siouxland area include damaging winds up to 60 mph or greater, large hail possible up to an inch or larger in diameter, and heavy rainfall at times.
