Oklahoma City Average Temperatures and Precipitation

By

Everyone seems to know about Oklahoma tornadoes, even to the point that it's almost become an overblown stereotype. But what about Oklahoma City's weather other than spring storms? Here's information on the overall climate as well as average temperatures and precipitation in Oklahoma City by month.

Oklahoma City's climate is officially categorized as "humid subtropical." This essentially means there's a good variation from the hot summers to the chilly winters with a significant and well-dispersed amount of precipitation throughout the year. OKC is on the far west side of this zone, however, and it could also be said that we experience characteristics of the hotter semi-arid climate of west Texas and New Mexico.
