SIOUX CITY | Unseasonably warm temperatures and dry conditions will be in the forecast as Siouxland residents get ready for Thanksgiving plans later in the week.
"Siouxland will be benefiting from a nice little warm front on Monday as the daytime high will be near 60 degrees," Kyle Weisser, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls, said on Monday morning.
However, during Monday's overnight hours, southwest winds will become gusty northwest winds.
That means Tuesday's high of 34 will be nearly 25 degrees cooler than Monday.
"Luckily, Tuesday is the excepting during a week in which will have a gradual warm up," Weisser said.
For instance, Wednesday's high of 41 will provide a nice contrast from the day before. Plus Thanksgiving Day will seem quite balmy with a high in the low 50s.
So, what will it be like for Black Friday shoppers? Weisser said bargain hunters will be hunting bargains on a day in which the temps will be above 60 degrees.
In addition, he said conditions will also be dry throughout the workweek.
"Mind you, we won't be seeing any record high temps during this period," Weisser said. "Instead, expect plenty of dry, mild days for Thanksgiving week."
