Oklahoma All-Time Record Low Temperature

Following yesterday's heavy snow, the Oklahoma Climatological Survey reported this afternoon that a new all-time state low temperature record was unofficially set at Nowata with a reading of -31°:
The Oklahoma Mesonet station at Nowata reached a low temperature of -31 degrees this morning. Pending verification procedures by NOAA's National Climatic Data Center, that mark will eclipse the previous statewide record low temperature of -27 degrees. The previous record was set at Vinita in February 1905 and at Watts in January 1930. Numerous other low-temperature records were broken this morning across the state, with several locations dropping below the previous statewide record. The National Weather Service site in Bartlesville recorded -28 degrees this morning, as did the Oklahoma Mesonet site at Pryor.
