Saturday afternoon temperatures climbed into the lower 70's. It was the warmest day of the year so far. The last time Omaha hit 70 degrees or warmer was on November 21, 2012. Normal high is 60 this time of year.
Temperatures have been steadily rising since the beginning of April. Above normal temperatures set in on Thursday and this pattern is expected to continue through Monday.
Another below normal cold spell is right around the corner, so enjoy the warmth while you can. Highs could be back in the 40s as early as Wednesday.
