Oklahoma City Breaks All Time Record for Most 100 Degree Days in a Year (8/22/2011)


* Record number of 100 degree days at Oklahoma City.

Today marks the 51st day that the Oklahoma City thermometer at Will Rogers World Airport reached or exceeded 100  degrees. This breaks the record for the most days in a year that the high temperature was at least 100 degrees.

The infamous hot Summer of 1980 was the other occurrence. We will likely be adding to this total, as temperatures for the coming days are forecast to be at or above 100 degrees.

Temperature records for Oklahoma City date back to 1891.
