Weather 7 day

You have two more days to enjoy the mild temps before cold air plunges into the Sooner State.

Temperatures will continue to warm, peaking tomorrow with highs near 70 degrees before a powerful system moves in for the weekend.

An arctic front will blast through our state on Friday bringing a big change in the weather.

Temperatures will drop by nearly 40 degrees with highs in the 30s and wind chills in the teens and 20s.

Patchy freezing drizzle is possible for north central Oklahoma Thursday night into Friday morning with the front.

Showers and thunderstorms are likely on Saturday, heavy rain is possible. Christmas day forecast

As cold blast #2 rolls in Saturday night, rain will quickly transition to snow.

Although Central Oklahoma will only receive a dusting, northwestern Oklahoma could see a few inches of accumulating snow through Sunday afternoon.

Temperatures will not warm past the 20s on Sunday with wind chills in the single digits!

Temperatures will warm to the 40s for Christmas Eve and a reinforcing cold shot of air will drop back temps to the 30s for Christmas Day.

A flurry or two can’t be ruled out for Christmas.
