After a warm Easter Sunday, a cold front moved through Sunday night, making for a chilly morning today.
Light rain began around 10:30 p.m. Sunday and quickly turned to snow, said David Pearson, a service hydrologist with the National Weather Service office in Valley.
The precipitation ended around 1 a.m. Eppley Airfield reported just under a half-inch of snow.
The cold air behind the front will be sticking around today, Pearson said. The temperature in Omaha probably won't get above 45 degrees, well below the city's April 1 average of 58, he said.
The rest of the week should be warmer than today.
The system “is a pretty quick mover,” Pearson said. “We kind of have to suffer through today. ... We'll be into the 60s by the end of the week.”
