Severe Storms Tuesday to Cooler Wednesday

Cooler and windy midweek
Posted at 5:07 AM, Apr 12, 2022

Temperatures soared into the low 90s in Omaha on Tuesday afternoon ahead of storms. We hit 91°, smashing our old record high for the day of 86° set back in 1916. The last time we were in the 90s was on September 28th.

Behind the cold front, Wednesday will be colder and windy. Highs will be in the low 50s. We may have to dodge a few snowflakes during the day, mainly in western Iowa. The strong wind and low humidity also combine for a very high fire danger, so not outdoor burning or anything that could start a fire.

We stay windy Thursday. The sunshine will be back, but we stay in the low 50s.

A few more clouds move in Friday with highs in the mid 50s.

The 50s continue this weekend with a small chance for some rain and snow late Saturday and into Easter Sunday.
