A cold front will blast through our state early Friday morning bringing a big change in the weather.

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

Some light rain is possible across our eastern counties Thursday night into Friday morning with the front.

Showers and thunderstorms are likely Friday night through Saturday night as our storm system tracks right over the state.

Expect a cold and heavy rain Saturday morning over southern and central Oklahoma. Some freezing rain may mix in over parts of northwestern Oklahoma.

More rain expected through the afternoon with some snow over NW OK. Snow and a winter mix will travel across the northern half of the state Saturday night and will exit Oklahoma Sunday morning.
