LINCOLN, Neb. -

Cities from Lincoln, NE to Milwaukee are setting records for the lack of snow.

Thursday in Lincoln is the 297th in a row without measurable snow. The former record was 295 snow-free days in 2004.

The National Weather Service says the 285 snowless days as of Wednesday in Omaha breaks the record 284 days that ended Dec. 30, 2006.

The Des Moines, Iowa, record of 277 days set in 1889 is being matched on Thursday.

Elsewhere in the Midwest, Chicago and Milwaukee have yet to have their first measurable snow of the season.

But good news may be ahead for winter wonderland fans: The service says snow is in the forecasts for Saturday night or Sunday in Nebraska and Iowa, the next day in Chicago.
