After 48 hours of very high heat and humidity, relief is on the way but we're going to have to get through some storms before it arrives. A cold front is on the move and storms are already forming out ahead of it. Early morning storms will begin to move out and it looks like we're going to get in on some sunshine as we catch a break in the storminess during the midday hours. Storms will then fire up once again this afternoon as the cold front starts progressing through the viewing area. A few could become severe this afternoon into tonight with the primary hazards being damaging winds, large hail, and heavy rainfall. Rainfall rates may exceed 2"/hr. and that is why we have a Flash Flood Watch in effect for really Dakota Co. and points eastward including Sioux City. A lingering storm is possible Friday morning as cooler and drier air pulls in behind the front clearing us out for the afternoon.
