COVID-19 Walking Path Boot Camp

The Sergeant Bluff Recreation Center has launched the Walking Path Boot Camp, which features signs calling for people to perform various exercises at different stations as they walk through the park. The boot camp encourages physical fitness and social distancing, as well as not requiring participants to touch exercise equipment. Tuesday was the warmest day of the year in Siouxland, as temperatures soared into the 70s. 

SIOUX CITY -- After a summer-like Tuesday, Siouxland will experience a more season-appropriate Wednesday.

Tuesday was the warmest day of the year as temperatures soared into the high 70s across the region.

"We may like those 70-something degree days," Jim Murray, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls, said. "But the average daytime high for early April is still in the mid-50s."

Which means Wednesday's forecast high of 59 is actually above-average. However, with a breezy, northwest wind gusting to 35 mph, the weather probably won't feel that warm.

Tuesday was the warmest day of the year in Siouxland, as temperatures soared into the 70s. 

Breezy conditions will stay in the forecast on Thursday, with northwest winds of 10-15 mph gusting to up to 30 mph.

This will make it feel positively blustery overnight Thursday. There will be clear skies, with temps dropping to the mid-20s.

Friday will see a nice rebound as the high hits the upper 50s. 

For Saturday and Sunday, the highs will vary between the mid-40s and the mid-50s while the lows bounce between the mid-20s and the low 30s.

"The interesting thing about this time of the year is that we can be in the mid-70s one minute and the mid-20s the next," Murray said. "The weather will always surprise you in April."
