According to National Weather Service records, cities north and south of Lincoln tied records Thursday evening for earliest snowfall.

In Peoria, a trace of snow was recorded at 4:47 p.m. Peoria's old record was set in 1937.

Simultaneously, at 4:47 p.m., Springfield also recorded trace snowfall, tying that city's 1962 record.

A warming trend is expected to bring temps up for the next couple of days, with a dip on Sunday, but warming and rain early next week.
