Oklahoma City official temp 31 degrees at 5:52 a.m., for earliest first autumn freeze on official record, according to the National Weather Service, Norman
Oklahoma City recorded its earliest official autumn freeze on Monday. The temperature was 31 degrees at 5:52 a.m. at Will Rogers World Airport, according to the National Weather Service, Norman Forecast Office. The previous record was Oct. 9, 2000 when it was 28 degrees.
There is a twist to the record, according to the National Weather Service, Norman. The temperature dropped to 32 degrees at Will Rogers World Airport on Oct. 7, 1952. However, the official station for Oklahoma City weather records at that time was the U.S. Weather Bureau Office on Classen Boulevard. The official temperature there that day was 33 degrees, one degree short of freezing. So Monday’s low of 31 degrees is the new earliest first autumn freeze for the city.
The average first freeze for Oklahoma City is Nov. 4.
