A brutally cold Sunday across Nebraska and western Iowa is expected to be followed by a mild warm-up in time for New Year’s Eve celebrations.
Dan Pydynowski, a meteorologist with AccuWeather, The World-Herald’s weather consultant, said Sunday’s dangerous wind chills of 20 to 30 degrees below zero were created by an Arctic cold front dropping down over much of the Plains. Winds of 25 mph to 30 mph caused the deep freeze, he said.
