So how cold was that weather that you braved this morning?
Van DeWald, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said the windchills at 8 a.m. were 16 degrees below zero in Omaha. Winds at that time had reached 17 mph.
People who headed to work earlier, caught a break. Wind were lighter at 7 a.m., so the windchill was 12 degrees below zero, he said.
The morning low, as measured at Eppley Airfield, was 7 degree.
This will be a cold week: Today's high is forecast in the low to mid teens, and windchills are likely to range from 10 degrees below zero to 0.
Tuesday morning will bring another cold commute. Morning temperatures are forecast to bottom out around 3 degrees, DeWald said. However, it won't be as windy in the morning,so it won't feel as cold as Monday did, DeWald said.
Wednesday is forecast to be the warmest day, with temperatures possibly topping out near 30 degrees, but Thursday shouldn't be too far behind.
On Sunday, temperatures could jump into the low 40s, DeWald said.
Some light flurries might fall tonight, but otherwise, there's no moisture in the forecast, he said.
