SIOUX CITY | The days of sunshine and relative warmth may be drawing to a close soon, as moisture from the Gulf of Mexico moves into Siouxland.
Brad Adams, a meterologist with the Sioux Falls National Weather Service, said drizzle will likely arrive in Sioux City Sunday afternoon or evening. The light rain might become heavier showers into Monday, but because temperatures are forecast in the high 30s, freezing rain is not expected.
"You guys are going to be in kind of the warm sector of this system," Adams said.
The rain may hang around through Monday, Adams said. When colder air moves into the area Monday afternoon and evening, the rain will become snow.
The resulting snow or snow-drizzle mixture is expected to stay around until Tuesday afternoon.
Total rain accumulation is expected to only be a quarter-inch, while there could be 2 inches of snow.
