There were some folks that were worried about thunderstorms creeping into Omaha on Wednesday, but they never materialized. On the other hand, when they did crop up, they did so initially as light pre-frontal rain on Thursday. The clouds and rain were generally widely anticipated, but the fact that the overcast skies kept temperatures in the low 70s? That was not what anyone had in mind. Accuweather did keep temperatures the coolest, forecasting a high of only 78 on Friday, and that ended up being the difference, despite being 5 degrees off from the correct high. They were able to claim victory in Omaha.
Actuals: Wednesday – High 84, Low 53
Thursday – .11 inches of rain, High 73, Low 62
