Like most of the central US, it has been uncomfortably warm in Oklahoma recently. Today is the 12th straight day that OKC airport has been at or above 100 degrees and the 39th straight day that we’ve been above 90 degrees. According to the NWS forecast, these streaks don’t look to end anytime soon.
Yesterday we hit 110 degrees – the hottest we’ve been since 1996 and the third hottest temperature OKC has been since records have been kept. Yesterday was also the first time in the history of the Oklahoma Mesonet (commissioned in 1994) that all 120 mesonet stations were above 100 degrees simultaneously.
We plan to take advantage of the heat sometime soon by attempting to cook an egg on blacktop 🙂
