SEASON’S FIRST SNOW
We ended up with a record breaking snow for some Sunday and Monday. Lincoln officially had 0.4″ of snow Sunday, breaking the previous record of a trace. That was low hanging fruit for Mother Nature.
Monday ended up dropping 2.5″ in the state capital. Not quite the record for the date. That was set in 1997 when 13.2″ of snow fell.
All totaled, Lincoln ended up with 2.9″ of snow. Many locations in central and eastern Nebraska had higher totals. Here are the higher totals I could find around the KLKN-TV viewing area.
