Talking about the Heatwave on the Southern Plains Perspective's Latest Blog Post

Talking about the Heatwave on the Southern Plains Perspective's Latest Blog Post There is a new blog post up at the Southern Plains Perspective by Clay Pope talking about the outrageous temperatures this summer has been faced with. Read a sneek peak of Clay Pope's latest blog post below!

115 degrees in Oklahoma.   Let that soak in.

According to the Oklahoma Farm Report, for only the second time in the history of the Oklahoma Mesonet 115 degrees has been recorded. The first time was in August of 2012 (during that “fun” drought stretch that ran from 2011 to 2015).

Granted, this was not the hottest day ever in Mangum Oklahoma (it hit 117 on July 3rd, 1980), but the difference this year is that these high temperatures are hanging on. Every single day this month has seen above normal temperatures, and we’ve already tallied ten 100-degree days in Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma City actually hit a new high for July with 110 degrees on the 19th. And Oklahoma City wasn’t alone. Lawton tied their daily record high at 114 degrees (set back in 1936 during the Dust Bowl) and Chickasha also set a new record, warming to 110 degrees, surpassing the high previously set in 1980.

None of this would be that unusual…except its July.   Typically, August is the hottest time of year in Oklahoma (the highest temperature EVER set in Oklahoma City was 113 degrees in August of 2012). Seeing this kind of hot, dry weather BEFORE you hit what’s normally the hottest, driest month gives you reason for pause. And Oklahoma’s not alone…
