Record snowfall for Oklahoma City

Almost double previous record set 45 years ago.

The 4.5 inches of snow that fell in Oklahoma City on Thursday is almost double the previous daily record of 2.7 inches that fell on Jan 3, 1973.

Many places in Oklahoma received more snow than that.

  1. Greece snow and storms: 1 dead, 2 missing. Jan 5, 2019
    An elderly woman died and two men went missing on Saturday as cold front “Sophia” continued sweeping across Greece, national news agency AMNA reported.
    Firemen retrieved the dead body of a 66-year-old woman from a car in a stream at Keratea town, 30 kilometers southeast of Athens, the Fire Brigade said. Her husband, 67, and a neighbor, 64, have been missing since Thursday. They were all passengers in the car when a heavy storm hit the area.
    The weather system which has gripped Greece from Tuesday brought snowfall and downpour in many parts of the country, mostly in central and northern provinces, shutting down regional roads. The Fire Brigade had to intervene from Jan. 3 to transfer to hospitals 28 patients nationwide, as well as move to safe sites 45 travelers who had been stranded in vehicles across the country, according to an e-mailed press release on Saturday.

    Ferry services were disrupted, as winds up to 9 on the Beaufort scale were blowing at sea, while hundreds of travelers suffered from flight delays and cancellations, the civil aviation authority said. Two hundred passengers of a flight which had departed from London on Friday evening were expected to arrive in Greece on Saturday evening by air or bus from Romania. The Ryanair aircraft was diverted to Timisoara airport, as it could not land at Thessaloniki Airport in northern Greece due to adverse weather conditions.
    On Saturday, in many parts of the country the thermometer showed temperatures close to zero degrees Celsius, while the lowest (-12.5C) was recorded at Florina town in northern Greece.

    Reader’s comment: Heavy snowfall in Austria is now on the Dutch MSM news. But heavy snowfall in Greece not. This news item is from Xinhuanet Ghana News. So heavy snowfall in Greece is headline news in the Chinese news for Ghana, Africa, but the Dutch MSM chooses to ignore it. And BBC News? Use the search engine on the BBC News website:

    Nope. The British people don’t need to know that.

  2. Then there was the massive cold storm of December 2000, all the way down to North Texas. OKC was in blizzard conditions with snow plowing and deicing vehicles everywhere. Global warming, anyone ??? raygun from Fort Worth, TX

  3. I forgot to mention it snowed in Houston in mid December this past year. Not much, but enough to get everybody’s attention. But, not an uncommon event.
