Hot news 

It was an abnormal September for Oklahoma, in case your perspiring pits didn't tell you that already.

According to Gary McManus, associate state climatologist with the Oklahoma Climatological Survey, the average statewide temperature was 74.5 degrees. That's 2.1 degrees above normal, and the 29th warmest September since 1895.

"The warmth during the month was much more widespread, with only a small portion of northeastern Oklahoma ending up below normal," McManus said, in a press release. "Much of the western half of the state finished 3-4 degrees above normal. The average high temperature across the state was 86.4 degrees, more than a degree above normal."

He noted that four of the last six months have been toastier than the usual for the Sooner State, with a January-September average temp at 0.3 degrees above normal.

To which we say, "Did you break a sweat, Sen. Inhofe?"
