Okla. Climate Officials Say Mild Winter to Continue (Feb 01, 2012)

NORMAN, Okla. - The Oklahoma Climatological Survey says the state’s mild winter weather will likely continue through February.

Last month marked the eighth-warmest January since records began in 1895, with the average temperature nearly 7 degrees above normal.

Despite the frequently pleasant conditions, parts of southeastern and south central Oklahoma saw between 4 to 7 inches of rain to somewhat ease the ongoing drought.

Associate State Climatologist Gary McManus says the odds are increasing of above-normal temperatures to end the winter season, which could make plants and vegetation more vulnerable to late-winter freezes similar to what Oklahoma saw in 2007 and 2009.
