The icy grip of a record cold wave continues. David Eastlack with the National Weather Service Office in Omaha says it hasn’t been this cold for so long since the 1880’s. He says this cold spell was very unusual and very unpleasant for all Nebraskans.
Patience will pay off. Eastlack says, “We are still looking at pretty cold wind chills across the area. Sub-zero, particularly in the morning hours for the next several mornings. Heading into the weekend, you can call it a warming trend if you want but we are still going to be below normal. By Monday we are looking at highs maybe in the lower 30’s.”
The good news is that we don’t have a foot or two of snow to clean up. Eastlack says there is a chance for snow in Nebraska on Sunday. Chances are it will be light and fall south of the I-80 corridor.
