  1. Meanwhile here in "boring" old Omaha, yesterday we broke another record high. The storms never held their strength as they made it here finally around 9p. In fact, only got lucky enough to have a small cell strengthen enough right over town to dump .15" of rain in about 10 minutes and had some small pea sized hail. I hit 95.4 yesterday IMBY. I saw a small town named Tekamah, NE just north of here hit 101 yesterday. Record Event Report National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE 910 PM CDT Thu May 12 2022 ...RECORD HIGH SET IN OMAHA, NEBRASKA... At 259 PM the temperature in Omaha reached 97 degrees, establishing a new record high for May 12th. The previous record was 93 set in 1956.
  2. I still just can’t get over how absolutely pitch black it got in late afternoon from the dust. 455p!!!
  3. More extreme weather. 2nd highest number of significant wind reports in one day, only below the outbreak from last December. Top 4 all in last 2 years. Totally fine….
  4. Spoke to my dad in Emery, SD a bit ago. That's about 45 minutes west of Sioux Falls. They are still without power and the entire town is blocked off. He said one of the grain elevators was completely blown over, lots of businesses in their downtown had windows blown out, dozens and dozens of trees down, and he lost most of his shingles on the south side of his roof. He heard a gust of 98 mph was measured in town. Also described how weird the storm was. The wall of dust moved in suddenly and made it pitch black like he's never seen before. Crazily the power went out with this first part of the storm. Then after about 10-15 minutes, the tornado sirens went off and that's when the real wind, rain, and hail hit.
  5. Wow! PDS Severe tstorm watch with gusts up to 105 mph likely!
  6. Storms going nuts out in central Nebraska. Upgrade to moderate risk coming. Meanwhile Omaha is out of the watch issued.
  7. Record Event Report National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE 135 AM CDT Thu May 12 2022 ...RECORD TEMPERATURES AT OMAHA NE ON WEDNESDAY MAY 11... It was a record setting day in Omaha on Wednesday May 11. The morning low was only 70 degrees, which broke the previous warm morning low record of 67 set in 1879. Records began in Omaha in 1871. And then a new maximum temperature record was set at 339 PM CDT when the temperature reached 96 degrees, breaking the previous record of 93 set in 2000.
  8. Should set a record high for the second day in a row and I believe the 4th or 5th time already this year. Feel like storms will probably be weakening by the time they make it here this evening.
  9. Smoke from fires down in New Mexico made it all the way up here this afternoon after the dry line moved through. Dropped visibility and made the air quality unhealthy.
  10. Made it 94.1 IMBY today. This morning at one point it was 80/70, but thankfully a dry line moved through and dropped the dews down to the low 50s. You can really see the dew point tank earlier today.
  11. 78.3 with a dew point of 70.7 IMBY. My favorite mornings of the entire year are mornings just like this. Warm, breezy, you can feel the dampness in the air, and smell the moisture. The birds are chirping and you can hear the mowers running. Of course, this usually proceeds hot and miserable later in the day, but I still love it.
