A Freeze For Most, Records For Some

The first area-wide freeze of the 2008/09 winter season arrived Tuesday 28 October thanks to arctic high pressure which had settled in. Overnight lows were either new records for the date….or very close:




City                  Old record/year                        Low of 28 October




Ada                   27/1925                                    25    **NEW RECORD**

Antlers               29/1993                                    21    **NEW RECORD**

Ardmore            27/1925                                    29

Durant               26/1957                                    28

Gainesville          n/a

Hugo                 28/157                                      30

Madill               28/1957                                     27    **NEW RECORD**

McKinney         n/a                                             28

Paris                  n/a                                            30

Sherman            31/1957                                    32

Tishomingo        25/1914                                    25    **TIED RECORD**




So, it’s safe to say that most of Texoma experienced a killing freeze on the morning of 28 October, ending the growing season for this year. The next potential cold blast is showing up in the long-range models in about 10 days.  In the meantime, milder weather is expected to accompany November’s arrival.
