2011 Holds Four of Seven Climate Extreme Records (Oct 13, 2011)

If you believe 2011 will be remembered as a year of weather extremes, you’re right.

This year already holds four out of seven records on the National Weather Service table of All-Time Climate Extremes for Oklahoma.

Those records include a six-inch hail stone that fell near Gotebo, a 150.8 mile per hour wind gust recorded at El Reno, and a 27-inch record snowfall at Spavinaw in northeast Okahoma.

The other 2011 record is the minimum temperature of 31 degrees below zero recorded in Nowata on Feb. 10.

But despite the hot, dry summer in the state, the maximum temperature record remains at 120 degrees set at four locations in Oklahoma in July and August of 1936.
