2011 sets new record with most 100-degree days of any year

*****UPDATE: Texoma exceeds all-time record for the number of 100+ days in a calendar year. These are not consecutive days, but the total number.

The 57th 100-plus-degree day of 2011 took place on Friday, August 26th, exceeding the 1956 record of 56 days.

FINAL TALLY: 66 days with last the 100 for year recorded on September 29, 2011

============================================

It seems only fitting for the summer of 2011, the hottest on record, to have the most 100-degree days for any year as well.

The old record (using Sherman records) for the most 100-degree days was 56 recorded in the year 1956. Its just one more record put to bed in this most awful summer.

Other records broken this summer in Texoma:


>>>Hottest August on record.

>>>Hottest July on record.

>>>2nd hottest June on record.

>>>Hottest Lake Texoma temperature on record at 91 degrees, August 5-7, 2011

>>>21 consecutive 100-degree-or-higher days at Sherman: all-time record (Sherman had a one-day break on July 20th when the high hit only 99…otherwise Sherman’s streak would have also been about 40 days)
>>>41 consecutive 100+ days at Ardmore: all-time record
>>>43 consecutive 100+ days at Ada: all-time record
>>>44 consecutive 100+ days at Durant: all-time record
Notable August 3 records:
Ardmore high temperature of 111 three degrees short of all-time record for the city, and hottest since 1936
Sherman high temperature of 111 two degrees short of all-time record for the city, and hottest since 1936
Antlers high of 112 hottest since 1943
Durant high of 111 hottest since 1956
Tishomingo high of 112 hottest since 1936
Add to this almost no rain for much of the area since June 1, and where it has rained amounts have been less than 25% of normal for the summer at best.
Needless to say it’s been a summer that we will scarce forget in our lifetime.
