SIOUX CITY (KTIV) -

**Flash Flood Watch for northern Siouxland from Thursday PM to Saturday AM**

Highs today soared well into the 90s as the humidity levels stayed just as highs as the last several days leading to a heat index near 105 degrees in most areas of Siouxland. 

We're going to see a break from this intense heat but it will come with thunderstorm chances. 

A Severe T-Storm Watch has already been issued for northwestern Siouxland until 10 pm. 

The first storms tonight will form in the northwestern parts of the KTIV viewing area and then those storms will slowly move east throughout the night and during the day Friday as well. 

Some of the storms tonight could produce some large hail and damaging winds but even more of us will stand the chance of heavy rain. 

Widespread rains of 1 to 2 inches could take place, especially in northern Siouxland, with up to 3 inches not out of the question for some. 

For that reason, a Flash Flood Watch has been issued for northern Siouxland through Saturday morning. 

We'll still see chances of thunderstorms on Saturday and Sunday as well. 

Temperatures will come down some for the next few days, especially on Friday when highs will be near 80 although it will still be humid. 

Highs in the low to mid 80s are expected both Saturday and Sunday. 

Drier conditions should be with us on Monday and Tuesday and it will be a little less humid with highs near 80. 

Wednesday and Thursday will bring back a chance of a few thunderstorms as temperatures will remain below average.
