The overnight low temperature in the Omaha metro area tied a 2005 record, and a National Weather Service meteorologist says Sunday's overnight low could bring a new record.
The National Weather Service's office in Valley, Neb., reported on its Facebook page this morning the overnight low at Omaha Eppley fell to 53 degrees at 6:34 a.m., tying a 2005 record set for July 27. The temperature was up to 57 degrees by 8 a.m.
Jim Meyer, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service's office in Valley, Neb., said he expects temperatures in Omaha to reach the mid-to-upper 70s today. Some overnight showers and thunderstorms that affected central Nebraska are moving toward Kansas and are unlikely to affect the Omaha area, Meyer said.
On Sunday, the National Weather Service is forecasting an overnight low of 51 degrees in the Omaha metro area, which would break the 52-degree record set in 1994. Like Saturday, Meyer said temperatures will reach the upper-70s later in the day.
Monday brings the week's best chance for precipitation, Meyer said. The National Weather Service is forecasting a 40-percent chance for showers with perhaps some isolated thunderstorms. Temperatures on Monday will again be in the mid-to-upper 70s.
Tuesday through Friday, prepare to store your blankets back in your closets -- Meyer said temperatures are likely to climb into the 80s each day.
