If you are not from the midwest, this is the most common weather question I get. I created a specific page about tornadoes to answer some of these questions.
Below is a chart of the average monthly temperatures in Omaha.
Averages can be a little deceiving.
You can have a week in February when the temps don’t reach 8°. While July can see a stretch where the highs top 98°. And triple digits aren’t uncommon.
|Month||Average High||Average Low|
|January||32° F||13° F|
|February||38° F||19° F|
|March||51° F||29° F|
|April||64° F||40° F|
|May||73° F||51° F|
|June||82° F||61° F|
|July||86° F||66° F|
|August||84° F||64° F|
|September||76° F||55° F|
|October||65° F||43° F|
|November||48° F||30° F|
|December||35° F||17° F|
The fall season often brings temperatures between the 50s and 70s, although it’s not out of the question to see some snow in the city as early as October or November.
The winter season is often cold with a good amount of snow. It’s said that Omaha gets about 30-inches of snow per year, slightly more than the national average. It is not common for the temperature to drop below -1, although you will probably experience low temperatures in the teens during some of the coldest months of the year.
In comparison, while it does rain in Omaha, the city gets less rain on average than other parts of the nation. It’s common for spring to usher in temperatures in the 60s, with spring rainfall and some severe weather possibilities. The transition between May and June often accounts for the highest probability of tornadoes.
Generally, the summer season is Omaha does get relatively hot and humid. Temperatures can get up to the high 90s, although it’s more typical for temperatures top out in the high 80s.
I did list the weather as one of the reasons not to move to Omaha.
