The coldest temperature ever recorded in Oklahoma was set today.

The Oklahoma Mesonet weather station at Nowata reached minus 31 degrees actual temperature at 7:40 a.m. today. That will be considered for the official state record.

That mark eclipses the previous all-time record low state temperature of  minus 27 degrees, set at at Vinita, Feb. 13, 1905, and Watts, Jan. 18, 1930.

 Also, the Mesonet station at Medford recorded a wind chill of minus 47 degrees at 7:45 a.m. setting a Mesonet record.

The Oklahoma Mesonet, which began in 1994, has 120 stations throughout Oklahoma.

On Feb. 1 at Boise City, the wind chill was minus 36 degrees.
