  1. Did you not read that it was just a record for October.
  2. I saw about six snowflakes and some very light freezing drizzle in Norman this morning, but now it's just cloudy, cold, windy, and dry.
  3. I wonder how much longer that will last. I do find it interesting how every month from July 2018 to now except September 2019 has been below normal in OKC, yet the planet as a whole is experiencing near-record to record warmth.
  4. Oklahoma set a new snowfall record for the month of October! https://twitter.com/NWSNorman/status/1187780076026249216 It was just depressingly cold and rainy here in Norman, but I'd rather not have snow until after Thanksgiving anyway, so I can't be too disappointed.
  5. We might get one of our earliest freezes on record here in the OKC/Norman area, depending on how cold it gets tonight.
  6. We may finally get below 60F for the first time this fall in about a week. It would be the latest first sub-60F low on record by about 5 days.
  7. What's the margin of error for these measurements? Is there any significant difference between the 2007, 2016, and 2019 extents or is it a statistical tie?
  8. It looks like with the possible exception of 1980, we just had the smallest Aug 13-29 sea ice extent drop on record.
  9. I feel like they say that every year. I'm betting on dry and mostly snowless, given the way past winters have gone.
  10. Yeah we had a bunch of storms last night, but it was worse just north of me. The OKC airport had its fifth wettest August on record (data since 1948).
  11. We got some nice thunderstorms here in Norman last night. It was the most significant rain we got since I returned here in late June. I really liked the cool weather this morning. Also, am I the only person from Oklahoma and states north on this forum? I feel like there's almost no one from my area for whatever reason.
  12. Bluewave hasn't updated for today, so I'll mention that it looks like 2019 is having a bit of trouble falling below 5 million on the extent value. NSIDC extent Date.....2012......2019........2019 difference 8-4.......5.990.... .5.762.....+228k lead 8-5.......5.768......5.596.....+172k lead 8-6.......5.632......5.510......+122k lead 8-7.......5.467......5.388......+79k lead 8-8.......5.256.....5.390......-134k behind 8-9.......5.088......5.259......-171k behind 8-10.....5.118......5.093......+25k ahead 8-11.....5.021......5.113.......-92k behind 8-12.....4.938......5.063.......-125k behind 8-13.....4.889 8-14.....4.724 8-15.....4.679 8-16.....4.619 8-17.....4.545 8-18.....4.520 8-19.....4.405 8-20.....4.313
  13. When I go to the NSIDC website I get different numbers that are higher for both years so I'm confused. I'm using the Charctic tool to view the data.
  14. But I don't like the new colors because I was so used to the old version.
