Much needed rain fell over the weekend…

An anticipated major severe weather outbreak occured over the weekend. Although, the coverage of severe storms was minimal in the Siouxland area, other areas in the Midwest were hit very hard. One good thing that did come over the weekend was the rain. Sioux City (as well as many other Siouxland areas) have been dealing with drought conditions, but just over 3.00″ fell over the weekend helping our monthly and yearly totals to climb above average. Here are the current stats for Sioux City.

 

Today we will be dealing with that stong area of low pressure exiting the region, and it won’t leave quietly. Stong winds will dominate with this morning into the afternoon. By this evening high pressure will move in and winds will lighten. Here are some of the highest gusts so far from last night and today.
