220 PM CST THU JAN 2 2014

...2013 YEARLY CLIMATE SUMMARY FOR OMAHA...

ON THE AVERAGE...THE YEAR 2013 IN OMAHA DID NOT DEPART TOO FAR FROM
NORMAL. THE AVERAGE ANNUAL TEMPERATURE OF 50.6 DEGREES WAS 0.4
DEGREES COOLER THAN NORMAL...WHILE THE AVERAGE ANNUAL PRECIPITATION
OF 29.00 INCHES WAS 1.59 INCHES BELOW NORMAL.  IN BOTH CASES...2013
RANKS NEAR THE MIDDLE OF THE PACK.  THE TOTAL ANNUAL SNOWFALL OF
31.8 INCHES WAS ABOVE NORMAL...BUT THE RANKING ALSO PLACES 2013 IN
THE MIDDLE OF THE PACK.  WITHIN THE YEAR...THERE WERE SEVERAL
EXTREMES.  THIS YEAR INCLUDED THE SNOWIEST MAY ON RECORD...AS WELL
AS THE EARLIEST 100 DEGREE READING IN MAY JUST 2 DAYS AFTER THE 2ND
LATEST FREEZE ON RECORD.  AFTER A WARM AND WET WINTER SEASON...THE
SPRING MONTHS OF MARCH-APRIL-MAY WERE THE 21ST COLDEST...17TH
WETTEST...AND 15TH SNOWIEST ON RECORD.  DRY WEATHER PLAGUED THE
SUMMER MONTHS AGAIN...WITH THE 2ND DRIEST JULY ON RECORD...BUT
FORTUNATELY THE HEAT WAS NOT AS STRONG AS IN 2012 AND THUS THE
DROUGHT IMPACTS WERE NOT AS SEVERE.  SUMMER HEAT ARRIVED LATER IN
THE SEASON...BRINGING THE 10TH WARMEST SEPTEMBER ON RECORD...AND THE
FIRST FREEZE WAS OVER A WEEK LATER THAN NORMAL.  AFTER A NEAR-
AVERAGE FALL...WINTER ARRIVED ON THE DRY AND COOL SIDE...WITH
SNOWFALL MUCH BELOW AVERAGE FOR THE WINTER SEASON THROUGH THE END OF
2013.

TEMPERATURES IN JANUARY SWUNG FREQUENTLY BETWEEN ABOVE AND BELOW
NORMAL READINGS...BUT ULTIMATELY...THE TEMPERATURES ENDED UP BEING
ABOVE NORMAL AS BOTH SNOWFALL AND PRECIPITATION FELL BELOW NORMAL.
TEMPERATURES IN EARLY TO MID JANUARY WERE MAINLY ABOVE NORMAL...WITH
DRY CONDITIONS THROUGH THE 21ST.  THE TEMPERATURE ROSE TO 50 DEGREES
OR HIGHER ON THREE DAYS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MONTH.  MOST OF THE
PRECIPITATION IN JANUARY FELL IN THE LAST 10 DAYS OF THE MONTH...BUT
NOT ALL OF IT FELL AS SNOW...AS TEMPERATURES WERE WARM ENOUGH ON
BOTH THE 10TH AND THE 27TH TO ALLOW RAIN.  A LIGHT 1.2 INCH SNOWFALL
ON THE 22ND BROKE A 24-DAY SNOW-FREE STREAK...WITH AN ADDITIONAL 3.5
INCHES ON THE 29TH TO 30TH ACCOMPANIED BY GUSTY WINDS.  COLD WEATHER
FOLLOWED THE SNOWFALL TO END THE MONTH.

COLD WEATHER DID NOT LAST LONG INTO FEBRUARY...AS TEMPERATURES
RECOVERED TO ABOVE NORMAL READINGS FROM THE 2ND TO THE 14TH...WITH
DRY WEATHER DOMINATING THROUGH THE 13TH.  HIGH TEMPERATURES AGAIN
REACHED THE 50S ON A COUPLE OF DAYS DURING THE MILD WEATHER.  A COLD
FRONT BROUGHT COLDER TEMPERATURES AND 0.9 INCHES OF SNOW ON THE 14TH
TO 15TH...ALONG WITH A SHIFT TO A COLDER WEATHER PATTERN THROUGH THE
REST OF THE MONTH.  A WINTER STORM BROUGHT HEAVY SNOW ON THE 21ST TO
22ND...WITH 7.5 INCHES OF SNOW ON THE 21ST FOLLOWED BY AN ADDITIONAL
0.8 INCHES ON THE 22ND...BRINGING THE FEBRUARY SNOWFALL TOTAL ABOVE
NORMAL EVEN WITH NEAR-NORMAL PRECIPITATION.

FOR THE WINTER MONTHS OF DECEMBER 2012 THROUGH FEBRUARY 2013...THE
WINTER WAS WARMER THAN NORMAL...WITH ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION.
THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OF 28.0 DEGREES WAS THE 22ND WARMEST ON
RECORD...AND WAS 2.1 DEGREES ABOVE THE NORMAL OF 25.9 DEGREES.  THE
TOTAL PRECIPITATION OF 3.14 INCHES WAS THE 30TH WETTEST ON
RECORD...REACHING 0.53 INCHES ABOVE THE NORMAL OF 2.61 INCHES.  THE
TOTAL SNOWFALL FROM DECEMBER THROUGH FEBRUARY OF 21.4 INCHES WAS 3.0
INCHES ABOVE NORMAL.  FOR THE TOTAL 2012-13 WINTER SEASON...35.7
INCHES OF SNOW FELL...WHICH IS 9.3 INCHES ABOVE NORMAL AND THE 34TH
SNOWIEST WINTER ON RECORD.

BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES CONTINUED INTO MARCH...WHICH WAS DOMINATED
BY COOLER THAN NORMAL WEATHER.  MUCH OF THE PRECIPITATION FOR THE
MONTH FELL ON THE 8TH TO 10TH AS A SERIES OF STORM SYSTEMS MOVED
ACROSS THE AREA.  PRECIPITATION FELL AS RAIN ON THE 8TH AND MOSTLY
RAIN ON THE 9TH...WITH 0.69 INCHES OF RAIN THOSE TWO DAYS.  THE
SNOWIEST WINTER STORM OF THE 2012-13 WINTER SEASON BROUGHT 8.8
INCHES OF SNOW AND SLEET ON THE 10TH...WITH AN ADDITIONAL 0.2 INCHES
ON THE 11TH...BRINGING THE STORM TOTAL TO 9.0 INCHES OF SNOW.  THE
SNOW PACK MELTED RAPIDLY AS TEMPERATURES REACHED ABOVE
NORMAL...FALLING TO ZERO SNOW DEPTH BY THE 15TH.  A FEW OTHER LIGHT
SNOWS FELL THROUGH THE MONTH AS TEMPERATURES FELL BELOW NORMAL FOR
THE NEXT 12 DAYS...WITH TEMPERATURES STRUGGLING TO GET OUT OF THE
20S AND 30S AND TYING A COUPLE OF DAILY RECORDS FOR COLDEST HIGH
TEMPERATURES.  THE MONTH ENDED WITH TEMPERATURES FINALLY WARMING
ABOVE NORMAL...ALONG WITH SOME LIGHT RAINFALL.  AS IN FEBRUARY...THE
TOTAL SNOWFALL IN MARCH WAS ABOVE NORMAL EVEN WITH NEAR-NORMAL
PRECIPITATION...AS MARCH WAS THE SNOWIEST MONTH OF THE 2012-13
SEASON.

COLD SPRING WEATHER CONTINUED INTO APRIL...WITH A FEW WARM PERIODS
PUNCTUATING LONGER COLD SPELLS.  A NOTABLE THUNDERSTORM EVENT ON THE
9TH BROUGHT 1.52 INCHES OF RAIN...AS WELL AS HAIL UP TO 2 INCHES IN
DIAMETER IN THE OMAHA METRO AREA...WHILE TEMPERATURES WERE BARELY
ABOVE FREEZING.  AFTER A SNOWY MARCH...THE ONLY SNOW OF THE MONTH
FELL ON THE 11TH...WITH JUST 0.1 INCHES.  INSTEAD...APRIL SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS BROUGHT WELL ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION...WITH THE
12TH WETTEST APRIL ON RECORD AT 5.33 INCHES.  APRIL WAS NOTED FOR
ITS COLD TEMPERATURE SUPERLATIVES AS WELL...BESIDES A COUPLE OF
DAILY COLD TEMPERATURE RECORDS.  THE LOW TEMPERATURE STAYED ABOVE 50
DEGREES FOR THE FIRST TIME OF THE YEAR ON THE 29TH...WHICH IS THE
4TH LATEST ON RECORD.  THE MINIMUM TEMPERATURE FELL AT OR BELOW
FREEZING ON 13 DAYS IN APRIL...WHICH TIES FOR THE 3RD MOST WITH 1881
(THE RECORD IS 14 DAYS IN 1983 AND 1874).  THE TEMPERATURE ROSE
ABOVE 80 DEGREES FOR THE FIRST TIME ON THE 28TH...AT 82
DEGREES...WHICH ALSO WAS ON THE LATER SIDE.

COLD TEMPERATURES PERSISTED INTO EARLY MAY...BEFORE FINALLY TURNING
WARMER NEAR THE MIDDLE OF THE MONTH.  DESPITE LOW TEMPERATURES
HOVERING JUST ABOVE FREEZING ON THE 1ST TO 2ND AT 33 DEGREES...1.9
INCHES OF SNOW FELL ON THE 1ST AND 1.2 INCHES ON THE 2ND...BOTH OF
WHICH WERE DAILY RECORDS. THE TOTAL SNOWFALL OF 3.1 INCHES FOR MAY
ALSO WAS THE SNOWIEST MAY ON RECORD...BREAKING THE PREVIOUS RECORD
OF 2.0 INCHES SET IN 1945.  THE END OF THE SNOWY WEATHER BROUGHT A
RECORD LOW OF 32 DEGREES ON THE 12TH...WHICH WAS ALSO THE LAST
FREEZE OF THE SEASON.  THIS WAS THE 2ND LATEST SPRING FREEZE ON
RECORD...MISSING THE RECORD LATEST BY JUST ONE DAY.  THEN...THERE
WAS AN ABRUPT CHANGE TO HOT WEATHER JUST TWO DAYS LATER...WITH A
RECORD HIGH OF 101 DEGREES SET ON THE 14TH.  THAT WAS THE EARLIEST
100-DEGREE-OR-GREATER READING ON RECORD FOR OMAHA...AS WELL AS THE
WARMEST TEMPERATURE OF THE YEAR AND THE ONLY READING IN THE 100S FOR
THE YEAR. TEMPERATURES REMAINED WELL ABOVE NORMAL FOR A FEW MORE
DAYS...THEN SETTLED BACK TO READINGS CLOSER TO NORMAL FOR THE REST
OF THE MONTH. THUNDERSTORMS BROUGHT BOTH RAIN AND HAIL ON THE
19TH...WITH SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS BRINGING SEVERAL MORE DAYS OF
RAIN OF A HALF INCH OR MORE.  WHILE THE TEMPERATURE SWINGS IN MAY
WERE REMARKABLE...THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE FOR THE MONTH ENDED NEAR
NORMAL...WITH SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION.

THE SPRING OF 2013 WAS COOLER...WETTER...AND MUCH SNOWIER THAN
NORMAL.  THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OF 47.9 DEGREES WAS 3.3 DEGREES
BELOW THE NORMAL OF 51.2 DEGREES...AND WAS THE 21ST COLDEST ON
RECORD.  THE TOTAL PRECIPITATION OF 13.06 INCHES WAS 3.35 INCHES
ABOVE THE NORMAL OF 9.71 INCHES...AND WAS THE 17TH WETTEST.  THE
MOISTURE BROUGHT WELCOME RELIEF FROM PROLONGED DROUGHT CONDITIONS
THAT HAD CONTINUED FROM 2012 AND...IN SOME PARTS OF THE AREA...AS
FAR BACK AS 2011.  HOWEVER...THE SNOWFALL WAS THE MOST NOTABLE
RARITY IN THE SPRING...WITH 14.3 INCHES OF SNOW THAT WAS 9.1 INCHES
ABOVE THE NORMAL OF 5.2 INCHES...AND WAS THE 15TH SNOWIEST SPRING ON
RECORD.  THE SPRING INCLUDED THE SNOWIEST MAY ON RECORD AND THE
SECOND LATEST START TO THE FREEZE-FREE SEASON IN OMAHA...IN ADDITION
TO THE EARLIEST TEMPERATURE AT OR ABOVE 100 DEGREES ON RECORD.

TEMPERATURES IN JUNE WERE QUITE A BIT LESS EXTREME...WITH A SLIGHTLY
COOL START TO THE MONTH AND A SLIGHTLY WARM MIDDLE THAT AVERAGED TO
NEAR-NORMAL TEMPERATURES FOR THE MONTH.  THE WARMEST LOW TEMPERATURE
OF THE YEAR...AND A RECORD FOR THAT DATE...OCCURRED ON THE 21ST AT
79 DEGREES.  THOUGH THERE WERE SEVERAL DAYS OF THUNDERSTORMS IN
JUNE...PRECIPITATION ENDED JUST SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL FOR THE MONTH.
THE STRONGEST THUNDERSTORMS OF THE MONTH IN OMAHA OCCURRED ON THE
24TH...BRINGING A 69 MPH WIND GUST THAT WAS THE STRONGEST RECORDED
WIND FOR 2013 AT EPPLEY AIRFIELD...WITH SMALL HAIL ALSO OBSERVED AT
THE AIRPORT.

BENIGN WEATHER CONTINUED INTO JULY...IN FACT...SO BENIGN THAT IT WAS
THE 2ND DRIEST JULY ON RECORD.  JUST 0.44 INCHES OF RAIN FELL
THROUGH THE MONTH...WHICH WAS MORE THAN THE JULY 2012 TOTAL OF 0.01
INCHES BUT STILL CAUSED WORSENING DROUGHT CONDITIONS AFTER A SPRING
THAT HAD BROUGHT RELIEF.  WITH THUNDER REPORTED ON SOME DAYS THAT
BROUGHT NO RAINFALL...THERE WERE STILL 6 THUNDERSTORM DAYS THROUGH
THE MONTH...WHICH DID NOT NECESSARILY CORRESPOND WITH THE 6 DAYS
WITH MEASURABLE RAINFALL.  TEMPERATURES SWUNG A FEW TIMES BETWEEN
ABOVE AND BELOW AVERAGE TEMPERATURES...WITH A COLD COUPLE OF DAYS
NEAR THE END OF THE MONTH THAT SET DAILY COLD TEMPERATURE RECORDS.

DRY WEATHER CONTINUED INTO AUGUST...THOUGH NOT AS EXTREME AS JULY.
THE FIRST HALF OF THE MONTH LEANED TOWARD COLDER THAN AVERAGE
TEMPERATURES...WITH A COUPLE OF THUNDERSTORM DAYS AND WITH ALMOST
ALL OF THE PRECIPITATION FOR THE MONTH.  FROM THE 19TH THROUGH THE
30TH...WARM TEMPERATURES AND DRY WEATHER DOMINATED.  SEVERAL DAILY
RECORD WARM TEMPERATURES WERE TIED NEAR THE END OF THE MONTH...WITH
TEMPERATURES IN THE 90S EVERY DAY FROM THE 23RD THROUGH THE 31ST AND
ALL BUT ONE DAY FROM THE 20TH TO THE 31ST.

THE SUMMER MONTHS OF JUNE THROUGH AUGUST 2013 WERE MUCH DRIER THAN
NORMAL...WITH SLIGHTLY WARMER THAN NORMAL TEMPERATURES.  THE TOTAL
SUMMER PRECIPITATION WAS JUST 6.90 INCHES...WHICH IS THE 20TH DRIEST
ON RECORD AND 4.93 INCHES BELOW NORMAL...OR 58 PERCENT OF NORMAL.
MUCH OF THAT SHORTAGE CAME IN JULY AND AUGUST...BOTH OF WHICH WERE
WELL BELOW NORMAL.  THE AVERAGE SUMMER TEMPERATURE OF 75.0 DEGREES
WAS 0.5 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL...BUT MAXIMUM TEMPERATURES REMAINED ON
THE MILD SIDE THROUGH MOST OF THE SUMMER.  THE LACK OF EXTREME HEAT
PREVENTED WORSE DROUGHT CONDITIONS FROM DEVELOPING IN THE AREA...BUT
SOME IMPACTS OF PROLONGED DRYNESS WERE STILL NOTED IN OMAHA AND
SURROUNDING AREAS.

SEPTEMBER WAS DOMINATED BY MUCH WARMER THAN NORMAL
TEMPERATURES...AND WAS THE 10TH WARMEST SEPTEMBER ON RECORD.  JUST 6
DAYS SAW TEMPERATURES BELOW NORMAL...AND TEMPERATURES REACHED 90
DEGREES OR GREATER ON 6 DAYS. CONDITIONS WERE LARGELY WARMER AND
DRIER FOR THE FIRST THIRD OF THE MONTH...WITH NEARER-NORMAL AND
WETTER WEATHER IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MONTH...INCLUDING SEVERAL
THUNDERSTORM DAYS.  WARM AND DRY WEATHER RETURNED FOR THE END OF THE
MONTH...WITH THE LAST 90+ DEGREE READING ON THE 27TH.

WARM WEATHER CONTINUED INTO EARLY OCTOBER...AND EXCEPT FOR A COUPLE
OF COOL DAYS...TEMPERATURES STAYED ABOVE NORMAL THROUGH THE 12TH.
MOST OF THE RAIN FELL IN THE FIRST HALF OF THE MONTH...WITH THE
HIGHEST ONE-DAY PRECIPITATION TOTAL OF THE YEAR ON THE 3RD AT 1.55
INCHES...WHICH IS THE 16TH LOWEST AMONG HIGHEST ONE-DAY
PRECIPITATION TOTALS FOR A YEAR ON RECORD.  THE SECOND HALF OF THE
MONTH WAS COOLER AND DRIER.  WITH SUCH WARM TEMPERATURES TO START
THE MONTH...THE FIRST FREEZE OF THE FALL WAS HELD AT BAY UNTIL THE
19TH...WITH A BRIEF FALL TO 32 DEGREES.  THIS WAS A WEEK LATER THAN
THE AVERAGE FIRST FREEZE OF OCTOBER 12 FOR 1981-2010.  LOW
TEMPERATURES SUBSEQUENTLY FELL BELOW FREEZING ON SEVERAL DAYS IN
LATE OCTOBER...ENDING THE GROWING SEASON AND BRINGING THE AVERAGE
MONTHLY TEMPERATURE DOWN BELOW NORMAL.

WIDE TEMPERATURE SWINGS BETWEEN ABOVE AND BELOW NORMAL READINGS LEFT
THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE FOR NOVEMBER JUST SLIGHTLY BELOW
NORMAL...DESPITE SEVERAL WELL BELOW NORMAL AND WELL ABOVE NORMAL
DAYS.  NEARLY ALL OF THE PRECIPITATION FOR THE MONTH FELL ON THE
5TH...WITH 1.00 INCHES OF RAIN ACCOMPANYING A COLD FRONTAL PASSAGE.
OTHERWISE...LIGHT PRECIPITATION FELL ON JUST 2 OTHER DAYS IN THE
MONTH...WITH A SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL TOTAL FOR THE MONTH.  THE FIRST
MEASURABLE SNOWFALL OF THE SEASON WAS RECORDED ON THE 21ST...WITH
0.4 INCHES OF SNOW THAT WAS MIXED WITH SLEET AND FREEZING RAIN.  IN
WAKE OF THAT SYSTEM...TEMPERATURES FELL TO COLDER THAN NORMAL
TEMPERATURES FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS...INCLUDING THE FIRST DAY OF
THE WINTER SEASON THAT TEMPERATURES DID NOT RISE ABOVE FREEZING ON
THE 22ND.

FOR THE FALL MONTHS OF SEPTEMBER THROUGH NOVEMBER...OMAHA WAS
SLIGHTLY WARMER AND A LITTLE WETTER THAN NORMAL.  THE AVERAGE
TEMPERATURE OF 53.8 DEGREES WAS 1.2 DEGREES WARMER THAN NORMAL.
TOTAL PRECIPITATION OF 7.56 INCHES WAS 1.09 INCHES ABOVE
NORMAL...AND THE TOTAL SNOWFALL OF 0.4 INCHES FOR THE FALL MONTHS
WAS 2.4 INCHES BELOW NORMAL THROUGH NOVEMBER.

THE COLD AND DRY WEATHER THAT STARTED THE WINTER DOMINATED THE MONTH
OF DECEMBER.  IT WAS THE 32ND COLDEST AND 20TH DRIEST DECEMBER ON
RECORD FOR OMAHA...WITH WINTER SNOWFALL MEASURING JUST 3.5 INCHES
THROUGH THE END OF 2013.  THE FIRST COLD AIR OUTBREAK OF THE MONTH
ARRIVED WITH LIGHT FREEZING DRIZZLE AND SETTLED IN ON THE 4TH TO
12TH...WITH THE HEART OF THE COLD AIR ON THE 5TH TO 9TH AS THE
TEMPERATURE REMAINED BELOW 20 DEGREES. THE MOST SUBSTANTIAL SNOW OF
THE WINTER TO DATE ARRIVED NEAR THE END OF THE COLD SNAP...WITH 2.0
INCHES ON THE 8TH AND ANOTHER 0.5 INCHES ON THE 10TH TO 11TH.  DRIER
AND WARMER AIR ARRIVED MID-MONTH...WITH TEMPERATURES TURNING COLD
JUST BEFORE CHRISTMAS AS ANOTHER COUPLE OF LIGHT SNOWS FELL.  BRIEF
WARMTH RETURNED FROM CHRISTMAS TO THE NEXT FEW DAYS...WITH A DAILY
RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURE TIED ON THE 27TH...AS DRY WEATHER AND
VARIABLE TEMPERATURES CLOSED THE LAST FEW DAYS OF 2013.
