We are closing the book on what has been the wettest year on record in Oklahoma City. The final yearly rainfall will come in at 56.95″ (we won’t add to that today). The average is 35.85″. The old record, 52.03″ stood since 1908.
Other notable items: January and December featured mean ice storms. May featured tornadoes. August brought “Erin” to the state. December had 3 snow events in one week.
It’s only fitting that we go into 2008 on a quiet note. It will be cold and the wind will be up. The midnight temperature in OKC will be 30 degrees, with wind chills in the upper 10s. If you’re headed downtown for Opening Night, you need to bundle up.
Tuesday and Wednesday look chilly, before we have a very nice warm up for the first weekend of 2008.
Have fun tonight, but be careful too–
