Record-tying high temperature for February in Oklahoma

The Associated Press - February 13, 2017 11:10 am

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – A warm front brought record high temperatures across Oklahoma, including near 100 degrees in southwest Oklahoma that tied a nearly century old record.
The National Weather Service says the high in Mangum on Saturday reached 99 degrees to tie a record set Feb. 24, 1918, in Arapaho as the highest February temperature ever in Oklahoma.
Temperatures in the region reached 98 in Altus and 97 in Tipton and highs in the mid-90s were common.
Record highs for Feb. 11 include 89 degrees in Oklahoma City that broke the record of 82 degrees set in 1962 and the 86 degrees in Tulsa broke a record of 77 set in 1951.
Much cooler temperatures are forecast through Monday with a chance for snow and sleet in western Oklahoma and rain elsewhere.
