Monday’s temperatures were the highest of the year to date

The Oklahoma Mesonet reports temperatures across the state on Monday were at their highest for the year.

Climatologist Gary McManus says the statewide average high was 69.2 degrees, highest of the month and a year….plus “a massive jump from the 8.9F we suffered through back on Jan. 14.”

He also said it was the warmest day since Dec. 7, 2023 when temperatures hit 70.2 degrees average.

“Changes are coming this weekend, as we said yesterday. Nothing too bad, just some rain and back to more seasonable temps,” wrote McManus in his Tuesday morning Mesonet newsletter.
