What a huge change from the earlier stretch of very hot record breaking heat across our region.

Note the low 40's observed in Nebraska  and upper 30's in North Dakota and South Dakota. 
A below freezing 31F was observed in southern Manitoba, Canada.

Record low temperature tied on August 16, 2012: 49 F, first set in 1897
Record low temperature on August 17, 2012: 44 F, Old record was 46 F set in 1943.

The above map is the forecast for August 23-27 and shows a continuation of cooler than normal temperatures for the Nebraska.  Longer range computer models show this current cooler than normal pattern to break down by the end of the month with a return to above normal temperatures for our region.
