A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for areas west of Omaha until 11 p.m.; however, the metro area will likely have thunderstorms on and off throughout the overnight.
Bitter cold arctic air continues to spill across the Heartland resulting in another day of unusually chilly conditions.
Yesterday's highs were stuck in the 20s, and today promises to be even colder with high temperatures struggling to climb out of the upper teens.
All throughout the region, temperatures will average a solid 15-20 degrees colder than normal. The average temperatures for this time of year should be near 41° for a high with overnight lows near 21°.
This morning's trip into work was exceptionally cold as temperatures plummeted to a mere 7° in Omaha...not quite cold enough for any records to be smashed as the record still sits at -2° set in 1965.
At any rate, most of this week will remain bitterly cold with below normal temperatures and biting cold wind chills.
