Reuters) - Oklahoma recorded its coldest temperature in state history on Thursday morning and records fell in cities in Missouri and Texas as a deep freeze gripped most of the nation.

Nowata, Oklahoma in the northeast part of the state recorded 31 degrees below zero Fahrenheit. The previous lowest temperature in state history in Oklahoma was 27 degrees below zero in 1930 and 1905, said Gary McManus, associate state climatologist with the Oklahoma Climatological Survey.

The cold came on top of two major snow falls, one Tuesday night, which brought up to 20 inches of snow in parts of the state, and one during last week's blizzard, which brought 8 to 20 inches.

"We just had a very cold arctic air mass and a heavy snow pack and that allowed the temperatures to plummet when the wind died down," said McManus. "We got much colder temperatures than anyone thought would occur."

Cold temperature records which have stood for nearly 80 years also fell across the Plains Thursday morning, including Springfield, Missouri and Corpus Christi, Texas, according to weather.com.

But states hit by the cold are expecting a thaw soon. McManus said temperatures in Oklahoma should rise to the 60s over the weekend and the 70s next week.

In the Midwest, Grand Forks, North Dakota will see a rise from 4 degrees Thursday to 20 degrees Friday, while Milwaukee will see a rise over the same period from 12 degrees to 26 degrees, said National Weather Service spokesman Pat Slattery.

There could be some light lake effect snow in the Great Lakes area, with a few spots in northern and western Michigan getting up to six inches, Slattery said.

The South is coping with an unusual cover of snow and cold, as up to two inches of snow fell in eastern North Carolina, central South Carolina and east-central Georgia Thursday morning, according to weather.com.

Nashville-area highways were still clogged Thursday with abandoned vehicles, after a snowy commute Wednesday night that took some commuters up to six hours.

The majority of the Northeast is experiencing dry and cold weather, with highs ranging from the 10s and lower 20s in northern New England, upstate New York and western Pennsylvania, according to weather.com. A band of cold air blowing across Lake Ontario could produce snow across western New York, the web site said."

13 at my house yesterday morning (S. of Ft. Worth), 55 right now and 70's tomorrow through next week. All the Super Bowl visitors from the north wondered why we don't have snow plows. This is why. It would take longer to plow it off than to just let it melt. The only exception in my memory was Super Bowl week when it was sub-freezing for 4 days plus. Super bad luck for the visitors and hosts.:D

It still baffles me that there are people out there who don't understand the difference between weather and climate. That like saying the $13k I have in my checking account means my retirement is fully funded. Or like saying 1 heartbeat determines a pulse or blood preassure.


Ain't the same thing!

That said, I feel for the southern states because they are not equipped to handle this like the northern states. They'll get buy just fine with no Katrina-style begging of the fed.gov either!!!

That's OK... it still baffles me how some people attribute global warming to any change in either... as though either are a constant and are unchangeable.

Those "Katrina Style Beggars" YOU refer to are a city full of life long welfare recipients that know no other life that depending on GOVERNMENT to supply their miserable lives! NOTE that MS and AL haven't had NEAR the issue MS has. Maybe it's because their Governors didn't "cry" and fully understood the LEGAL process for requesting Federal assist. New Orleans is awash with corrupt politics just like Chicago!

Bugs..(BTW I was there on day 2 after storm doing medical evacuations!)
