Lincoln almost makes snow records

It's been 46 year since Lincoln has seen snow this late in the season. Typically the last snowfall is March 27.

"Snow in May. I think it's crazy," Ellen Loughran, Lincoln, said.

Overnight, just under three inches of snow were dumped on Lincoln.

Natalie Umphlett, Regional Climatologist, said Lincoln has been keeping weather records for 65 years.

"Since 1948, we've only had this happen one other time, so that's a really rare event," Umphlett said.

That one other time was May 3, 1967. We got three inches.

Umplett said we're seeing a lot of cold temperatures this year. Last month was the coldest April on record since 1997.

When those low numbers combine with a nice storm system, Umphlett said snow is just going to happen.

But Lincoln residents are ready for spring.

"It's pretty ridiculous. I can't believe it's still hanging on this long," Bryan Willnerd, Lincoln, said. "I'm looking forward to spring making an appearance."
