SIOUX CITY | Due to extremely hot and unseasonable weather on Friday, some students in the Sioux City School District will be let out of class early.

The forecast high for Sioux City on Friday is 95 degrees, and the overnight low only dipped down to 73 degrees. Sioux City School District Superintendent Paul Gausman in a tweet at  8:30 a.m. announced the early-out decision.

Students will leave classes two hours in four elementary schools that do not have air conditioning: Bryant, Hunt, Riverside and Sunnyside schools. Gausman thanked students and teachers "for hard work in challenging conditions!"

Pupils will have a full day of classes in the other schools.

The Sioux City School District had two early-outs last week due to hot weather.

The forecast calls for a low of 71 degrees Saturday morning, then the day holds a 30 percent chance of thunderstorms, with an estimated high of 88.

There is also a chance of rain on Saturday night and Sunday, when the forecast high is 82 degrees.
