If you needed an extra blanket last night, here's why: An overnight low of 23 degrees for April 19 broke a 1953 record of 24 degrees, according to Dave Fobert, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Valley, Neb.
Despite the cool start to the day, highs should reach the mid-50s today and mid-60s tomorrow in the Omaha metro, Fobert said. Clouds are expected with a chance of light rain showers and 10-to-20 mph winds from the southeast.
Earlier next week, a cold front is expected to bring cooler temperatures and a chance of light, non-accumulating snow to Omaha, Fobert said. The metro could see rain showers and isolated thunderstorms, with the snow falling hardest to the northwest around Norfolk.
