THE YEAR BEGAN WITH MILD WEATHER ACROSS THE REGION CONTINUING FROM

MUCH WARMER AND MUCH WETTER THAN NORMAL.  THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OF
29.9 DEGREES WAS 3.1 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL AND THE 19TH WARMEST

ONE MAJOR SNOW EVENT...THE PRECIPITATION TOTAL OF 3.84 INCHES WAS
1.48 INCHES ABOVE NORMAL AND THE 18TH WETTEST ON RECORD.  FOR THE
WINTER OF 2011-12...18.8 INCHES OF SNOW FELL...WHICH IS WELL BELOW

SEVERAL READINGS THAT WERE THE EARLIEST TO REACH THOSE
THRESHOLDS...AS WELL AS A TIE FOR THE WARMEST MARCH DAILY HIGH

WARMER THAN THAT MONTH...APRIL ALSO WAS VERY WARM...AS THE 10TH
WARMEST APRIL ON RECORD.  THE LAST FREEZE OF THE SEASON OCCURED ON
APRIL 23...WHICH WAS JUST TWO DAYS LATER THAN AVERAGE.
HOWEVER...WITH THE EARLY START TO THE GROWING SEASON IN MARCH...THE
IMPACT OF THIS FREEZE WAS STILL MUCH LIKE A LATE FREEZE...WITH SOME
PLANT AND CROP DAMAGE.  THUNDERSTORMS WERE RECORDED ON SIX DAYS IN
APRIL.  A SEVERE WEATHER OUTBREAK ON THE 14TH BROUGHT SMALL HAIL AND
LOCAL FLOODING TO LINCOLN.  THE HIGHEST ONE-DAY RAINFALL OF THE YEAR
OCCURRED ON THE 14TH...WITH 2.75 INCHES...WHICH ALSO WAS A DAILY
RAINFALL RECORD.  APRIL WAS THE LAST MONTH UNTIL DECEMBER WITH ABOVE
NORMAL PRECIPITATION.
 
WARM WEATHER CONTINUED THROUGH MAY...AS IT WAS THE 11TH WARMEST ON
RECORD...WITH ANOTHER RECORD WARM TEMPRATURE SET LATE IN THE MONTH.
STORMY WEATHER DOMINATED THE EARLY AND LATE PARTS OF THE MONTH...BUT
EVEN SO...PRECIPITATION FELL BELOW NORMAL.  THERE WERE 8 DAYS WITH
THUNDERSTORMS RECORDED AT LINCOLN AIRPORT BUT ONLY 6 OF THOSE DAYS WITH RAIN.
 ONE OF THOSE ON THE 19TH BROUGHT SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS TO
LINCOLN...WITH A 66 MPH GUST MEASURED AT THE AIRPORT THAT TIES THE
HIGHEST WIND GUST OF THE YEAR.

APRIL-MAY AVERAGE TEMPERATURE WAS 59.3 DEGREES...BREAKING THE
PREVIOUS RECORD OF 56.1 DEGREES SET IN 1977.  ALSO...THE COMBINED
WINTER AND SPRING SEASONS OF DECEMBER THROUGH MAY ALSO SET THE
RECORD FOR WARMEST...WITH AN AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OF 44.8 DEGREES
THAT BROKE THE RECORD OF 44.0 DEGREES SET IN 1992.  SPRING
PRECIPITATION WAS SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL AT 7.38 INCHES...WHICH IS
1.55 INCHES BELOW NORMAL.
 
WARM WEATHER CONTINUED THROUGH JUNE...WHICH WAS THE 22ND WARMEST ON
RECORD.  JUNE SAW 13 DAYS AT OR ABOVE 90 DEGREES...WELL ABOVE THE
NORMAL 8 DAYS...AND ONLY THE 1ST SAW A MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE BELOW 70
DEGREES.  DESPITE THE PERSISTENT HEAT...NO DAILY TEMPERATURE RECORDS
WERE SET IN JUNE. PRECIPITATION WAS SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL IN
JUNE...WITH MOST OF THE RAIN FALLING IN THREE EVENTS AND THE LAST OF

WELL AS THE 3RD LONGEST STREAK OF DAYS WITH TEMPERATURES AT OR ABOVE
104 DEGREES.  THE HOTTEST TEMPERATURE OF THE YEAR OCCURRED ON THE
22ND...AT 105 DEGREES.  OVERALL...11 DAYS IN JULY REACHED 100
DEGREES OR HOTTER...WHICH IS THE MOST SINCE 1980.  THE COMBINATION
OF EXTREME HEAT AND EXTREME DRYNESS ALLOWED EXTREME DROUGHT TO
SPREAD QUICKLY INTO THE LINCOLN AREA IN JULY.

2006.  RAIN FELL ON 7 DAYS IN OCTOBER...INCLUDING 5 DAYS WITH
