A dreary December day

Siouxland saw overcast and windy conditions during much of Monday, with rain and snow moving through the area late in the day. Tuesday is expected to be breezy and partly cloudy, with a high of 35.

SIOUX CITY | Following a unseasonably warm weekend, cold conditions will be making their way to Siouxland by midday on Monday, according to Tim Masters, a technician with the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls.

"A cold front will be in Sioux City by 10 a.m.," Masters said Monday morning. "The cold front brings with it northwest winds that can gust as high as 45 mph."

In addition, the winds will make temps plummet while bringing moisture to the area.

"By early afternoon, the precipitation will be rain but as temperatures cool off, we may be seeing some snow in Siouxland," Masters said. 

This may make your evening commute treacherous, since falling snow will likely occur as the sun goes down.

Even though snow accumulation is likely to be less that half an inch, blowing snow might make travel difficult, especially outside of the city.

Masters said snow will be exiting Sioux City by 8 p.m Monday. However, cold temperatures will remain.

"Expect highs in the low 30s and lows in the teens for the remainder of the workweek," he said. "The bright side is, despite slight chances fur flurries, the long-term forecast doesn't call for any measurable snow."
