A repeat of last year is unlikely, but it could happen if the storm moving across the country this weekend drops significant snow in the Omaha area.
Last year, several days before Christmas, about 6 inches of snow fell and most of it remained on the ground through the holiday.
According to the National Weather Service, Omaha had 4 inches of snow on the ground on Christmas Day 2012. The daytime high was 12 degrees and the low was 2.
This Christmas, the weather is expected to be much milder. The high on Christmas Day is expected to be in the low 30s, according to the weather service. If Omaha gets snow this weekend, temperatures likely wouldn't climb as high.
Year in and year out, Omaha averages a 33 percent chance for a white Christmas (at least an inch of snow), according to the weather service.
The National Weather Service in Valley took a look at Christmas weather records for Omaha, Lincoln and Norfolk.
Here are the Omaha records:
• Warmest Christmas Day: 57 degrees in 1936 and 1946
• Coldest Christmas Day: 2 degrees in 1983
• Warmest Christmas morning: 45 degrees, 1936
• Coldest Christmas morning: 17 degrees below zero in 1983
• Most snow on the ground: 13 inches in 1983
