Oklahoma's Extremely Extreme Weather of 2011-2012
Room 15 (Austin Convention Center)
Gary McManus, Oklahoma Climatological Survey, Norman, OK

Oklahoma has more FEMA-declared disasters since the year 2000 than any other state, and therefore its people are quite used to extraordinary weather headlines. During 2011, Oklahoma's all-time state records began to fall, including lowest recorded temperature, highest 24-hour snowfall total, hottest month and hottest summer. The extreme weather did not stop there, however, with more records and extremes in store for the state during 2012.
