Bitter arctic air is making a quick push through the Omaha area Thursday and Friday morning — on the heels of a similarly fast snowstorm that turned roads treacherous and claimed a life in Iowa.
Temperatures are forecast in the single digits, and wind chills were expected to be around 10 to 15 degrees below zero, powered by north winds of around 20 mph. Temperatures aren't expected to rise much from the morning low Thursday of about 9 degrees as the cold air overrules normal daytime warming.
