SIOUX CITY | Following an unseasonably mild weekend, blustery conditions will return to Siouxland on Monday, according to Alex Ferguson, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls.
"By 10 a.m. Monday morning, Sioux City will likely be at its daytime high for the day," Ferguson said. "Clouds will be moving in as a cold front brings in northwest winds that will be gusting to as high as high as 45 mph by this afternoon."
The cold front will send temps plummeting to the 30s by mid-afternoon and introduce a 30 percent chance of precipitation for the remainder of the day.
"Even though little accumulation is expected, there is a chance for icy conditions later in the day," Ferguson said. "However, precipitation -- in either rain or snow -- will be spotty at best."
Monday's blustery weather will be short-lived.
Decreasing clouds will give way to clear conditions during Monday's overnight hours.
In addition, the rest of the week will have partly cloudy skies as well as highs either slightly below or slightly above 40 degrees.
"There really isn't a rain or snow episode in the forecast for the next seven days," Ferguson said. "I don't think too many people will be disappointed by another week of mostly nice weather."
