May14, 2013, Nebraska: Hottest for so early in the Season


May 14, 2013: Record Breaking Heat in Nebraska

Lincoln set a record high today of 100F breaking the old record of 96F set in 1915.  This was the earliest in the season that Lincoln has seen 100F or higher with 127 years of data (1887-2013).  This is in sharp contrast to Lincoln's record low of 31F just two days earlier.  The previous earliest 100F or higher was May 24 (1967).

Omaha set a record high today of 101F breaking the old record of 96F set in 1915.  This was the earliest in the season that Omaha has seen 100F or higher with 143 years of data (1871-2013).  The previous earliest 100F or higher was May 29 (1934).

Grand Island set a record high today of 102F breaking the old record of 99F set in 1941.  This was the earliest in the season that Grand Island has seen 100F or higher with 119 years of data (1895-2013).  The previous earliest 100F or higher was May 20 (1925).


However, these were not the warmest locations in the state.  The highest temperature observed today was the 108F in Tekahma, Nebraska.  Wahoo, NE,  hit 104F, Wayne, NE and York, NE hit 103F; Grand Island, NE and Columbus, NE hit 102 F.

Was the 108F in Tekamah a state record for the warmest ever observed temperature for the month of May? No, the warmest ever Nebraska May temperature was 110F in Broken Bow in 1895.

There is a listing of high temperatures for today below the three maps.
