Yes, cooler weather is on its way to Oklahoma.
Next week, daytime highs will be in the 60s!
“NEXT week, that’s when FALL fall arrives. You like highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s?” is how Gary McManus, State Climatologist with the Oklahoma Mesonet put it this week in a daily Mesonet update.
August proved to be a hot one as temperatures reached the triple digits at times, topping out at 110 degrees at Camargo and Hollis on the 28th. Oklahoma City’s first triple-digit temperature was 102 on the same day.
McManus reported the heat index values were even higher with Idabel reaching 118 degrees on the 29th.
The Mesonet’s 120 sites recorded heat index values of at
least 105 degrees 546 times during August. The state’s lowest temperature was 53 degrees at Cookson on the 19th.
