...JANUARY WAS WARMER AND SLIGHTLY WETTER THAN NORMAL IN OMAHA...

THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OF 27.7 DEGREES WAS THE 31ST WARMEST ON
RECORD...WITH PRECIPITATION RANKING JUST SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL FOR
THE MONTH.  THE TOTAL SNOWFALL OF 2.7 INCHES WAS 3.4 INCHES BELOW
NORMAL AND THE 23RD LOWEST JANUARY TOTAL ON RECORD.

AFTER A MILD NEW YEARS DAY AND DAY AFTER...WITH JUST A HUNDREDTH OF
AN INCH OF RAIN ON THE 2ND...TEMPERATURES TURNED CHILLY IN THE FIRST
WEEK OF JANUARY. THE 3RD THROUGH 8TH SAW TEMPERATURE WELL BELOW
NORMAL...WITH THE COLDEST HIGH TEMPERATURE OF THE MONTH ON THE 5TH
AT 11 DEGREES AND THE COLDEST LOW TEMPERATURE OF THE MONTH ON THE
6TH AT -3 DEGREES.  A LIGHT HALF INCH OF SNOW FELL ON THE 4TH. AS
CONDITIONS TURNED MORE MILD...PRECIPITATION BECAME MORE
FREQUENT...BUT SNOW WAS HARD TO FIND.  RAIN FELL ON THE 10TH...BUT
THE ONLY SNOW FROM THE 5TH THROUGH THE 23RD FELL ON THE 12TH AT JUST
A TENTH OF AN INCH. THE RAIN ON THE 12TH WAS FOLLOWED BY FALLING
TEMPERATURES...WHICH DID CAUSE SOME ISSUES WITH FREEZE-UP ON ROADS
AND SIDEWALKS.

AN ICE STORM ON THE 15TH TO 16TH BROUGHT A COMBINED 0.53 INCHES OF
PRECIPITATION...AND ICE ACCUMULATIONS OF AROUND A TENTH TO QUARTER
OF AN INCH ACROSS THE OMAHA METRO AREA.  WITH LIGHT WINDS AND
TEMPERATURES THAT ROSE ABOVE FREEZING ON THE 16TH...IMPACTS WERE
MINIMAL IN OMAHA.  ESPECIALLY MILD CONDITIONS OCCURRED FROM THE 15TH
THROUGH THE 23RD...WITH LIGHT RAINS ON THE 20TH TO 21ST...AND A HIGH
TEMPERATURE ON THE 21ST THAT HIT 51 DEGREES.

SNOWFALL ON THE 24TH TO 25TH AMOUNTED TO 2.0 INCHES AT OMAHA
EPPLEY...WITH TOTALS CLOSER TO 3 INCHES IN THE WESTERN METRO AREA.
WITH AN ADDITIONAL 0.1 INCHES OF SNOW ON THE 26TH...THE AMOUNT
NEARLY DOUBLED THE SEASONAL SNOWFALL TOTAL TO DATE. THAT TOTAL
REMAINS AT A MEAGER 5.9 INCHES...WHICH IS 9.2 INCHES BELOW NORMAL
AND THE 12TH LOWEST SNOW TOTAL TO DATE ON RECORD IN OMAHA. FOLLOWING
THAT SNOW EVENT...TEMPERATURES RETURNED TO READINGS WELL ABOVE
NORMAL TO END THE MONTH. THE WARMEST TEMPERATURE OF THE MONTH...AT
56 DEGREES...OCCURRED ON THE 30TH.

THROUGH THE END OF JANUARY...THE ACCUMULATED WINTER SEASON SEVERITY
INDEX (AWSSI) FOR OMAHA RANKS AS THE MILDEST ON RECORD (FOR WINTERS
OF 1950-51 TO PRESENT). THE WINTER TOTAL HAS REACHED 219 AS OF
JANUARY 31.
