Mother's Day is going to start off on a chilly note with temperatures in the 30's. Omaha is not only going to come close to a record low, but also have to put up with a potential killing frost.
Temperatures will range from 30 to 37 degrees across the Heartland Saturday night into Sunday morning. The Weather Authority is currently forecasting a low of 35 degrees, just two degrees shy of the record low of 33 set in 1878.
Some of the coldest readings are expected in low lying areas like valley locations. Because temperatures could drop below freezing and produce frost, a frost advisory was issued by the National Weather Service for 3-9 a.m. Sunday.
Be sure to cover any sensitive outdoor plants or newly emerged vegetation because the frost could kill them if left unprotected. Sunday morning is going to be the coldest morning over the next seven days. An above normal temperature pattern unfolds during the upcoming week.
