121 in Freedom, Oklahoma

Wednesday was the hottest day in Oklahoma since August 1936, said wunderground's weather historian, Christopher C. Burt, with more than half of the state recording temperatures of 110 or higher. The hot spot Wednesday: 121 in Freedom, in the northwest part of the state. If verified, this temperature would beat Oklahoma's all-time state temperature record of 120, set in Tipton on June 27, 1994, and at three locations in 1936. The official temperature at the Oklahoma City airport hit 112 Wednesday, tied for the city's 2nd highest temperature since record keeping began in 1890. The only hotter day was August 11, 1936, when the temperature hit 113. Other hot spots in Oklahoma yesterday:

118 at station W1DY (just north of Oklahoma City's Wiley Post Airport)
116 at Claremore
115 at Chandler, Enid, Guthrie, Okmulgee, Omega, and Kingfisher

Thursday's forecast calls for a high temperatures of 113 in Oklahoma City, which would be the hottest temperature in the city's history. You can see the extreme high of 121 in Freedom, OK using the NWS Mesonet Observations tool.

It was also brutally hot in northern Texas, with the hottest temperature a 118 reading at station DW3597 in Wichita Falls, Texas. This is just shy of the state record of 120 set on August 12, 1936, in Seymour. The Wichita Falls airport hit 112, which was just 1 below the all-time hottest August temperature ever measured in the city (113 on August 8, 1964.)
