Three Years Ago, Oklahoma Experienced The Warmest Winter Day On Record With A Temperature Of Almost 100 Degrees
Most of us know Oklahoma has a wicked sense of humor when it comes to weather. We can experience summer in the dead of winter and even all four seasons in one week. But almost three years ago in February 2017, something crazy happened – the town of Mangum reached almost 100 degrees, breaking a record for the warmest winter day on record.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

Luckily this isn’t a typical weather pattern we’ll see every year. We get enough heat as it is in the summer months, we don’t need the scorching temps invading our winter months too.
Oklahoma’s upcoming winter is going to see it all… according to the Farmer’s Almanac. A “polar coaster” winter is headed our way, so be prepared for a variety of weather – hopefully not any temps near 100 degrees, though.
