July 28, 2013: Record Cold Morning in Eastern Nebraska

Unseasonably cold air slipped down out of Canada into the Great Plains on July 27-28, 2013,  with the result that numerous record low temperatures were set in the morning of July 28, 2013.

New record Lows for July 28, 2013:

Location New Record   Old Record low, year
Omaha     50F         52F in 1994
Norfolk   45F         48F in 1925 
Lincoln   47F         47F (tied, originally set in 1994)

Outside Nebraska
Location       New Record   Old Record low, year
Grand Forks, ND    42F         44F in 1981
Sioux City, IA     45F         50F in 1994
Jamestown, ND      41F         42F in 1934
Mitchell, SD       43F         47F in 1925 
Huron, SD          41F         47F in 1883,1971
Sioux Falls, SD    44F         45F in 1925     

The first map shows the locations of the record low temperatures this morning (July 28, 2013) and record cold daytime high temperatures.

The second map is color coded showing that the coldest temperatures were found in North Dakota, eastern South Dakota, eastern Nebraska, and northern Missouri eastward into Minnesota, Iowa and the Midwest.

The third map has the observed morning low temperatures for the lower 48 states as well as Southern Canada.  It is interesting to note the 33F in the Canadian Prairies.  Undoubtedly there must have been some frost up there in that region.
