Omaha set a daily record for rainfall Monday, but was a little too warm this morning to set a record low.
The 1.25 inches that fell Monday broke the old record of .98 inches set on April 22, 2007, according to the National Weather Service.
Rainfall has been abundant across the region this month as this map shows.
This morning's low was 30 degrees at Eppley Airfield, the record for the date is 28 degrees.
A hard freeze is forecast tonight, with lows expected to bottom out at about 26 degrees. If the temperature drops that low at Eppley, it will match the existing record for the date, according to Josh Boustead, meteorologist at the weather service.
The city has set two records this month: Monday's rainfall and Saturday morning's chill. On Saturday, the low dropped to 23 degrees at 6:54 a.m., one degree lower than the previous record for that date, set in 1953.
Totals are still be calculated, but so far Omaha area has received more than 3 inches of rain in the past seven days, and Lincoln has received more than 2 inches.
