From this page you can navigate directly to the Climate section

A tremendous resource for those seeking weather data within Oklahoma is of course our very own Mesonet

From the Mesonet page, you can visualize many of the atmospheric parameters from the present to the near past.  You will need to download a plug-in for your browser, which you can get from

If you feel overwhelmed by the many parameters that are available to you, then you may want to get the Mesonet Product Catalog

You can also download and install the WeatherScope software on your computer, which you can use to play back past data or watch data loops in real time.
