On March 27 and 28, 2009 Oklahoma received more snow in a 24-hour period than any time since records began in 1892, with official measurements of 26 inches at Woodward and Freedom. Unofficial totals were even greater. The hardest hit areas in Oklahoma were in the extreme northwest as well as into the Panhandle. So many areas were still digging out a year ago today.
Today at 4:05 p.m. the Oklahoma Mesonet reported that Buffalo in far northwestern Oklahoma reached 90 degrees and about 10 minutes later, Beaver in the eastern Panhandle reached 91 degrees.
By 4:20 p.m., those locations as well as Slapout in the eastern Panhandle had all reached 90 degrees.
