After being buried with roughly 2 feet of snow Wednesday, outstandingly cold air has pooled over parts of Oklahoma, Arkansas and neighboring states. This morning was the coldest in recorded history for some areas.

At 7 a.m. CST, it was colder in northeastern Oklahoma than at the South Pole.

The Oklahoma Mesonet reported a low temperature of -31° F at Nowata, Okla. If this temperature is valid, it will be the new all-time record low for the state.

The previous all-time low temperature record for Oklahoma is -27° F.

In Bartlesville, Okla., a temperature of -28° F was recorded at the airport at 7:19 a.m. This temperature also beats the state record.

Elsewhere in the Bartlesville area, a temperature of -29° F was reported around 7 a.m.

As AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Eric Wanenchak pointed out, the temperature at the South Pole was -23° F at 7 a.m. CST this morning. Therefore, parts of Oklahoma and Kansas were just as cold, if not colder.
