Coldest In A While, But No Records

The coldest air in years continues to pour across the Heartland.

Temperatures will drop rapidly through the overnight and bottom out near -12° in the metro, and with very brisk winds persisting, wind chills by Monday morning will be pushing close to 40 BELOW ZERO.

As brutally cold as these readings will be, it is still not likely to set any weather records. The record low for Omaha for January 6th is -22° set in 1887.

Even so, temperatures will be a far cry from normal as highs should climb to near 33° for this time of year with average evening lows near 14°.
