SIOUX CITY -- Following a cloudy, rainy weekend, the workweek will begin with more of the same.
"A stationary front sitting on top of Siouxland will mean one more day of gloomy clouds and intermittent chances for rain," Mike Gillispie, a hydrologist with the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls, said, "While the 70 degree high temp is very seasonal for this time of the year, there's also a 70 percent chance for precipitation throughout the day. Barring the possibility of a stray storm, new rainfall amounts will likely be less than a tenth of an inch."
Gillispie said the rain will likely stick around until Monday night.
"We'll have a slight chance for thunderstorms, mainly before 10 p.m.," he explained. "Then, things will be clearing up considerably."
Indeed, Tuesday should see the return of sunny skies and warm temperatures.
"Tuesday's high will hover around the 80 degree mark," Gillispie said. "Wednesday's high in the low 80s will seem very summer-like."
This warm-up will continue Thursday and Friday, before a cold front comes to Siouxland, late Friday night.
"Things may change between now and then," Gillispie said. "But it looks likely that we'll have another wet and cool weekend."
