Record High Temperatures Set For First Day Of Spring

OKLAHOMA CITY –  The first day of spring saw temperatures in Oklahoma, Arkansas and Texas, that broke or tied records, including two that were more than a century old.

The National Weather Service says it was 92 degrees in Tulsa on Monday, tying a record set in 1907. And a 92 degree reading in Lubbock, Texas, broke the record 90 degrees set in 1916.

Other records include 92 degrees in Dallas to break the record of 91 set in 1932; 84 degrees in Houston to break the record of 83 set in 1980; and 85 degrees in Fayetteville, Arkansas, to break the 2011 record of 79 degrees.

Weather service meteorologist Jonathan Kurtz in Norman, Oklahoma, said the heat is due to a high pressure system pulling in heat from the desert southwest.
