Cold Weather Shatters Records

February 10, 2011|Weather Blog | KSPR Chief Meteorologist Kevin Lighty

Springfield, MO — Well it has been quite the week of weather once again in the Ozarks with nearly 2 feet of snow falling yesterday and then today record shattering cold in the area. This winter is going down as one of the most active and coldest on record if we keep things going at this pace.

Take a look at the low temperatures from this morning. Obviously the -10 in Springfield stands out but also look at Camdenton with -17.

The cold weather extended further into Oklahoma where nearly 2 feet of snow fell. With all of the snow pack down there, they saw the coldest weather that they have seen EVER in the state of Oklahoma. Look at Bartlesville with the -28 low. Nowata, OK has the record now of -31. WOW!!!

Obviously record lows were broken all over the area. Springfield broke a nearly 80+ year record set back in 1929 with the morning low of -10.


Below is the record for Joplin.

And here is West Plains.

Have no worries, the warm-up is about to commence. Look at how we stair step our way up into the 60's by early next week. WOW!!!!

At the end of the 7 day forecast we are starting to see a chance for showers & storms. Yes just a mere 7 days after being at -10 degrees, the Ozarks may have thunderstorms. This place never ceases to amaze me!!!
