NORMAL AND THE 24TH COOLEST YEAR ON RECORD...WHILE THE AVERAGE
ANNUAL PRECIPITATION OF 26.71 INCHES WAS 2.24 INCHES BELOW NORMAL
BUT NEAR THE MIDDLE OF THE PACK IN RANKINGS. THE TOTAL ANNUAL

PLACES 2013 IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PACK.  WITHIN THE YEAR...THERE WERE
SEVERAL EXTREMES.  THIS YEAR INCLUDED THE 2ND SNOWIEST AND 7TH

SLIGHTLY WARM WINTER SEASON...THE SPRING MONTHS OF MARCH-APRIL-MAY
WERE THE 11TH COLDEST...7TH WETTEST...AND 14TH SNOWIEST ON RECORD.
DRY WEATHER PLAGUED THE SUMMER MONTHS AGAIN...WITH THE 6TH DRIEST
JUNE-JULY-AUGUST 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 15TH WARMEST
SEPTEMBER ON RECORD...AND THE FIRST FREEZE WAS OVER A WEEK LATER
THAN NORMAL.  LATE SEASON SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS BROUGHT TORNADOES
JUST SOUTH AND EAST OF THE CITY OF LINCOLN ON OCTOBER 3RD. 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
NEAR NORMAL...AS DID BOTH SNOWFALL AND PRECIPITATION.  TEMPERATURES
SWUNG BETWEEN ABOVE AND BELOW NORMAL READINGS ROUGHLY EVERY 5 DAYS
THROUGH THE MONTH...WITH ONE RAINFALL ON THE 10TH BUT NO OTHER
PRECIPITATION UNTIL THE 21ST. THE TEMPERATURE ROSE TO 50 DEGREES OR
HIGHER ON THREE OUT OF FOUR DAYS FROM THE 16TH TO THE 19TH. A LIGHT
1.2 INCH SNOWFALL ON THE 21ST TO 22ND BROKE A 21-DAY SNOW-FREE
STREAK...WITH AN ADDITIONAL 5.0 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 14TH.  HIGH TEMPERATURES AGAIN
REACHED THE 50S ON A COUPLE OF DAYS DURING THE MILD WEATHER.  A COLD
FRONT BROUGHT COLDER TEMPERATURES AND 0.2 INCHES OF SNOW ON THE
15TH...AND ANOTHER 0.1 INCHES OF SNOW ON THE 18TH...ALONG WITH A
SHIFT TO A COLDER WEATHER PATTERN THROUGH THE REST OF THE MONTH.  A
WINTER STORM BROUGHT SNOW ON THE 21ST TO 22ND...WITH 5.1 INCHES OF
SNOW ON THE TWO DAYS...AND 4.6 INCHES ON THE 21ST SETTING A DAILY
SNOWFALL RECORD...BRINGING THE FEBRUARY SNOWFALL TOTAL NEAR NORMAL

PRECIPITATION.  THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OF 27.6 DEGREES WAS 0.8
DEGREES ABOVE THE NORMAL OF 26.8 DEGREES.  THE TOTAL PRECIPITATION
OF 2.77 INCHES WAS 0.41 INCHES ABOVE THE NORMAL OF 2.36 INCHES.  THE
TOTAL SNOWFALL FROM DECEMBER THROUGH FEBRUARY OF 16.8 INCHES WAS 0.1

INCHES OF SNOW FELL...WHICH IS 1.8 INCHES ABOVE NORMAL AND THE 31ST
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 0.26 INCHES OF RAIN THOSE TWO DAYS AS WELL AS
THUNDER ON THE 9TH.  THE SNOWIEST WINTER STORM OF THE 2012-13 WINTER
SEASON BROUGHT 5.5 INCHES OF SNOW ON THE 10TH.  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 30S.  THE MONTH ENDED WITH
TEMPERATURES FINALLY WARMING ABOVE NORMAL...ALONG WITH THUNDERSTORMS
BRINGING ALMOST AN INCH OF RAINFALL.  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 TO 10TH BROUGHT 1.07 INCHES OF RAIN...AS WELL AS HAIL TO PARTS
OF CENTRAL AND EASTERN NEBRASKA...WHILE TEMPERATURES WERE BARELY
ABOVE FREEZING.  AFTER A SNOWY MARCH...THE ONLY SNOW OF THE MONTH
FELL ON THE 10TH...WITH 0.5 INCHES...AND ON THE 18TH...WITH 0.1
INCES.  INSTEAD...APRIL SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS BROUGHT ABOVE
NORMAL PRECIPITATION...WITH THE 19TH WETTEST APRIL ON RECORD AT 4.02
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 IN APRIL ON
THE 29TH.  THE MINIMUM TEMPERATURE FELL AT OR BELOW FREEZING ON 16
DAYS IN APRIL...WHICH TIES WITH 1909 FOR THE RECORD HIGHEST TOTAL.
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...2.5
INCHES OF SNOW FELL ON THE 1ST AND 0.2 INCHES ON THE 2ND...BOTH OF
WHICH WERE DAILY RECORDS. THE TOTAL SNOWFALL OF 2.7 INCHES FOR MAY
WAS THE 2ND SNOWIEST MAY ON RECORD...AND ONLY THE 2ND MAY ON RECORD
SINCE 1948 WITH ANY MEASURABLE SNOW.  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 AND THE 7TH LATEST SPRING FREEZE ON
RECORD.  THEN...THERE WAS AN ABRUPT CHANGE TO HOT WEATHER JUST TWO
DAYS LATER...WITH A RECORD HIGH OF 100 DEGREES SET ON THE 14TH.
THAT WAS THE EARLIEST 100-DEGREE-OR-GREATER READING ON RECORD FOR
LINCOLN...AS WELL AS TIED FOR THE WARMEST TEMPERATURE OF THE YEAR.
TEMPERATURES REMAINED ABOVE NORMAL FOR A FEW MORE DAYS...THEN
SETTLED BACK TO READINGS CLOSER TO NORMAL FOR THE REST OF THE MONTH.
THUNDERSTORMS BROUGHT ABUNDANT RAIN ON THE 18TH...19TH...25TH...AND
ESPECIALLY THE 27TH...WITH 3.32 INCHES OF RAIN ON THE 27TH
ALONE...WHICH WAS THE HIGHEST ONE-DAY PRECIPITATION TOTAL OF THE
YEAR. THUNDERSTORMS ON THE 29TH BROUGHT THE HIGHEST MEASURED WIND
GUST OF THE YEAR AT LINCOLN AIRPORT...AT 55 MPH. WHILE THE
TEMPERATURES SWINGS IN MAY WERE REMARKABLE...THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE
FOR THE MONTH ENDED NEAR NORMAL.  THE 8.45 INCHES OF RAIN IN MAY WAS
THE 7TH WETTEST ON RECORD IN LINCOLN.

THE SPRING OF 2013 WAS MUCH COOLER...MUCH WETTER...AND MUCH SNOWIER
THAN NORMAL.  THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OF 47.5 DEGREES WAS 3.8
DEGREES BELOW THE NORMAL OF 51.2 DEGREES...AND WAS THE 11TH COLDEST
ON RECORD.  THE TOTAL PRECIPITATION OF 14.60 INCHES WAS 5.67 INCHES
ABOVE THE NORMAL OF 8.93 INCHES...AND WAS THE 7TH WETTEST ON RECORD.
 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 10.8 INCHES OF SNOW THAT WAS 4.6
INCHES ABOVE THE NORMAL OF 6.2 INCHES...AND WAS THE 14TH SNOWIEST
SPRING ON RECORD.  THE SPRING INCLUDED THE 2ND SNOWIEST MAY ON
RECORD...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 OCCURRED ON THE 21ST AT 76 DEGREES.  THOUGH
THERE WERE SEVERAL DAYS OF THUNDERSTORMS IN JUNE...PRECIPITATION
ENDED BELOW NORMAL FOR THE MONTH. THE STRONGEST THUNDERSTORMS OF THE
MONTH IN LINCOLN OCCURRED ON THE 8TH...BRINGING A 52 MPH WIND GUST.

BENIGN WEATHER CONTINUED INTO JULY...IN FACT...SO BENIGN THAT IT WAS
THE 13TH DRIEST JULY ON RECORD.  JUST 1.00 INCHES OF RAIN FELL
THROUGH THE MONTH...WHICH WAS ENOUGH OF A DEFICIT TO CAUSE WORSENING
DROUGHT CONDITIONS AFTER A SPRING THAT HAD BROUGHT RELIEF...EVEN
WITH THE COOLER-THAN-NORMAL TEMPERATURES IN JULY.  PRECIPITATION WAS
ONLY RECORDED ON 2 DAYS IN JULY...WHICH TIED FOR THE FEWEST ON
RECORD.  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...WITH THE 14TH DRIEST
AUGUST ON RECORD IN LINCOLN.  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.  A DAILY RECORD WARM MINIMUM TEMPERATURES WAS
TIED NEAR THE END OF THE MONTH...WITH TEMPERATURES IN THE 90S OR
100S 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 COOLER THAN NORMAL TEMPERATURES.  THE TOTAL SUMMER
PRECIPITATION WAS JUST 4.60 INCHES...WHICH IS THE 6TH DRIEST ON
RECORD AND 6.64 INCHES BELOW NORMAL...OR 41 PERCENT OF NORMAL.  MUCH
OF THAT SHORTAGE CAME IN JULY AND AUGUST...BOTH OF WHICH WERE WELL
BELOW NORMAL.  THE AVERAGE SUMMER TEMPERATURE OF 74.6 DEGREES WAS
0.6 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL...AND 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 LINCOLN AND
SURROUNDING AREAS.

SEPTEMBER WAS DOMINATED BY MUCH WARMER THAN NORMAL
TEMPERATURES...AND WAS THE 15TH WARMEST SEPTEMBER ON RECORD.  JUST 6
DAYS SAW TEMPERATURES BELOW NORMAL...AND TEMPERATURES REACHED 90
DEGREES OR GREATER ON 9 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.  THE HIGH TEMPERATURE OF 100 ON THE 9TH SET A
DAILY RECORD AND WAS THE LAST 100+ READING OF THE YEAR.  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 11TH.
MOST OF THE RAIN FELL IN THE FIRST HALF OF THE MONTH...WITH 2.06
INCHES ON THE 3RD ALONE.  THUNDERSTORMS ON THE 2ND AND 3RD BROUGHT
NOT ONLY HEAVY RAIN...BUT ALSO SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS THAT SPAWNED
TORNADOES JUST SOUTH AND EAST OF THE CITY ON THE 2ND. ANOTHER 0.53
INCHES OF RAIN FELL ON THE 14TH...AND THOSE WERE THE ONLY 2 DAYS
WITH MEASURABLE RAIN IN THE MONTH. 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
17TH...WITH A BRIEF FALL TO 32 DEGREES.  THIS WAS 12 DAYS LATER THAN
THE AVERAGE FIRST FREEZE OF OCTOBER 5 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 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 1.20 INCHES OF
RAIN ACCOMPANYING A COLD FRONTAL PASSAGE.  OTHERWISE...LIGHT
PRECIPITATION FELL ON THE 21ST...AND THAT WAS THE ONLY OTHER
PRECIPITATION FOR THE MONTH.  THE FIRST MEASURABLE SNOWFALL OF THE
SEASON WAS RECORDED ON THE 21ST...WITH 0.2 INCHES OF SNOW.  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...LINCOLN HAD NEAR
NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND PRECIPITATION.  THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OF
53.0 DEGREES WAS 0.3 DEGREES WARMER THAN NORMAL.  TOTAL
PRECIPITATION OF 6.04 INCHES WAS 0.38 INCHES BELOW NORMAL...AND THE
TOTAL SNOWFALL OF 0.2 INCHES FOR THE FALL MONTHS WAS 2.6 INCHES
BELOW NORMAL THROUGH NOVEMBER.

THE COLD AND DRY WEATHER THAT STARTED THE WINTER DOMINATED THE MONTH
OF DECEMBER.  IT WAS THE 19TH COLDEST AND 22ND DRIEST DECEMBER ON
RECORD FOR LINCOLN...WITH WINTER SNOWFALL MEASURING JUST 5.9 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 5.2 INCHES
ON THE 8TH AND ANOTHER 0.2 INCHES ON THE 7TH.  DRIER AND WARMER AIR
ARRIVED MID-MONTH...WITH TEMPERATURES TURNING COLD JUST BEFORE
CHRISTMAS AS ANOTHER COUPLE OF VERY 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.
