SIOUX CITY -- Wet conditions continue to hang in for the first half of October in Siouxland, but it appears a dry spell may finally arrive on Monday, with sunny skies to boot.
Siouxlanders have been griping about the colder and wetter than normal past week. The wet conditions have made it difficult for farmers needing crops to dry out before harvesting them.
Friday was drizzly and cloudy in Sioux City, with the high not getting above 43 degrees, which is the normal daily high for late November. The National Weather Service in Sioux Falls shows a Saturday forecast high temperature of 58 with mostly sunny skies in Sioux City, with a 40 percent chance of showers in the evening.
On Sunday, the forecast holds a chance of rain or snow in the early afternoon on a day with a likely high temperature of 42 degrees.
The improvements arrive on Monday. That is the first of five consecutive days with no chance of precipitation, and sunny skies are expected every day as well.
The high temperatures are forecast be in the 40s on Monday in Sioux City, in the mid-50s on Tuesday and Wednesday, then into the 60s on Thursday and Friday.
