THE BENIGN PATTERN FROM JUNE CONTINUED INTO JULY...WITH AN ABSENCE

ONE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT WEATHER-RELATED IMPACTS IN OMAHA THIS

NORMAL.  THE HIGHEST TEMPERATURE OF THE MONTH...AT 79 DEGREES...WAS
RECORDED ON THE 2ND...AND THE LOW TEMPERATURE OF 58 DEGREES ON THE
4TH WAS A DAILY RECORD.  THE FIRST FREEZE...WITH 30 DEGREES ON THE

A TIE FOR THE LATEST FREEZE ON RECORD AND WAS AMONG THE LATER FIRST
SNOWFALLS...FOLLOWING SEVERAL EPISODES OF LIGHT FREEZING RAIN NEAR
THE END OF NOVEMBER.

DECEMBER BROUGHT 2015 TO A CLOSE WITH A NUMBER OF SUPERLATIVES. THIS

PRECIPITATION WELL SURPASSING THE PREVIOUS RECORD OF 4.45 INCHES SET
IN 1984.  THE MONTHLY AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OF 34.1 DEGREES WAS THE
16TH WARMEST ON RECORD AND WAS A STUNNING 8.1 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL.
ADDITIONALLY...THE 12.3 INCHES OF SNOWFALL WAS THE 14TH SNOWIEST

CALENDAR YEAR 2015.  ABOVE-NORMAL TEMPERATURES DOMINATED THROUGH THE
26TH...AND THE LOW TEMPERATURES IN OMAHA DID NOT FALL INTO THE TEENS
