Coldest Temperature Ever Recorded in Oklahoma: -31F today
WUWT ^ | 2/10/2011 | Ryan Maue

Posted on 02/10/2011 3:06:47 PM PST by Signalman

The coldest temperature ever recorded in Oklahoma was set today.

The Oklahoma Mesonet weather station at Nowata reached minus 31 degrees Fahrenheit actual temperature at 7:40 a.m. today. That will be considered for the official state record.

That mark eclipses the previous all-time record low state temperature of minus 27 degrees, set at at Vinita, Feb. 13, 1905, and Watts, Jan. 18, 1930.

Also, the Mesonet station at Medford recorded a wind chill of minus 47 degrees at 7:45 a.m. setting a Mesonet record.

The Oklahoma Mesonet, which began in 1994, has 120 stations throughout Oklahoma.

The Obama Administration has three options.

Blame Bush.

Blame Global Warming.

Blame Sarah Palin.

That is bizarre. And here in Vermont it only got down to -4 last night. I really think Al Gore must be sneaking around down there somewhere, maybe selling carbon credits door-to-door.

Hard to believe: The all time Oklahoma low temp is 5 degrees colder than the same record for Minneapolis.

Whoa that is cold. I think God is trying to tell Al Gore and his fellow fools something.

That’s nothing. I lived in upstate New York in 1987. In March it was -25, in March!

“Global” warming is not what Al has to worry about. There is a place that is even warmer, no umbrella drinks but plenty of politicians.

And, that's the year I left New York for a warmer climate.

If this keeps up, global warming will turn the Earth into one giant ice ball.

YOu’re right — busted. -28 doesn’t turn it slushy, does it? And I know durn well that Okies don’t have their pipes protected anywhere near that low.

The best bet is to assure them that with a winter that cold, there are going to be a lot fewer insects come spring.

That is certainly going to put a dent in the global temperature chart.

Well, I suppose that does make me feel a little better. Maybe it will keep the fire ants at bay, too.

Have ‘crazy ants’ made it to Oklahoma yet? While they don’t bite like fire ants, and will even drive away fire ants, they are already driving a lot of Texans bonkers.

I gather that you don’t just get crazy ants, either. You get tons of crazy ants, so much so that dogs won’t go into a backyard for fear of being covered with them. No bites, but eeech. If you walk out there, your legs up to your knees will be covered with them in short order.
