Daily Historical Weather for October 31
On this Halloween day in 1993, ghouls and goblins floating around Wichita Falls and Oklahoma City were seen with coats and mittens on, as record lows for this particular date were made in both cities. Wichita Falls got down to 21 degrees, while the mercury fell down to 16 degrees in Oklahoma City.
The only two Halloween days in Oklahoma City to have any frozen precipitation occurred in 1941 and 1991. Disappointed trick or treaters had to put away their sleds and snowmobiles each day, as only trace amounts of snow were seen.
Northwest Oklahoma had a scary Halloween in 1984, as several tornadoes touched down that afternoon and evening. One tornado caused about $30,000 in damage to a gas power plant in Woodward County, then moved into Major County. There, it destroyed or damaged 10 to 15 outbuildings, two houses, six barns, and many cars, trucks, and farm implements along its path.
