SIOUX CITY | Temperatures will return to near normal today, and rain also returns to the forecast.

Temperatures are expected to reach 80 degrees, which is slightly cooler than the normal temperature for this time of year, said Mike Gillispie, a hydrologist with the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls.

Scattered thunderstorms are expected in the area after midnight and into Wednesday. Rainfall totals should be light, Gillispie said, with storms dropping up to 0.25 of an inch or less. Some isolated areas may receive heavier rainfall.

After high temperatures in the mid 70s on Wednesday, highs should be around 80 degrees Thursday and Friday with only a slight chance for scattered showers.

Lows of 55-60 degrees are forecast through the rest of the week.
