Rusty’s 6 First Alert forecast: Near record warmth to start off December!
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - It’s another mild start as we get going with the month of December. You’ll encounter upper 30s and lower 40s along with clear skies out the door today. The somewhat mild start only warms with highs in the 60s likely this afternoon!
WSW wind gusts up to 25 mph this afternoon will be a bit pesky but will also be a big part of the reason we’ll warm up to near records!
The record high today is 69 degrees set in 1998. We’ll come very close but likely fall just short.
Thursday’s record is a little more within reach at 67 degrees. I think we’ll be able to get very close to 70 degrees in the afternoon, setting a record and making it only the 4th time we’ve hit 70 degrees in the month of December in Omaha in recorded history! The all time record high for the month of December is 72 degrees.
Even when we do cool down by the weekend, we’ll still end up warmer than average with our afternoon highs!
