Severe thunderstorms and heavy rain are expected to hit Siouxland on Monday and Tuesday, according to a weather alert issued by KTIV. The severe thunderstorm watch is in effect until 10 a.m., but the chances of severe weather have decreased. However, some areas are already experiencing flooding, leading to a Flash Flood Warning in certain counties until 11 a.m.

The thunderstorms and rain will persist throughout the morning, tapering off after midday. By the afternoon, the clouds are expected to clear up and some sunshine will return. Wind speeds will be breezy, ranging from 15 to 25 miles per hour with gusts up to 35 miles per hour. Temperatures will reach the mid- to low-80s.

Tonight, the weather is expected to be calm with above-average temperatures in the 70s. Breezy winds from the southeast will continue, along with partly cloudy skies.

Looking ahead to Tuesday, the day will start off sunny with strong south winds blowing between 20 and 30 miles per hour, gusting up to 40 miles per hour. Highs will be in the mid-80s. However, as the day progresses, another front will move in, bringing the potential for more severe thunderstorms. The Storm Prediction Center has placed much of Siouxland under a Marginal to Slight Risk for severe weather, with the main threats being large hail, strong winds, and a slight possibility of tornadoes.

The extended forecast shows rain chances persisting throughout the work week, with the possibility of some areas receiving over 3 to 4 inches of rain by the end of the week. Wednesday is expected to be cooler with showers likely and highs in the 60s to low 70s. Another round of severe weather is forecasted for the upcoming weekend, with next week looking to be less active in terms of rain and storms.
