Old Man Winter is back with a vengeance in the Sooner State.

Arctic air continues to plunge into the Sooner state and temperatures this afternoon will only reach the 20s under partly cloudy skies.

Strong northerly winds will create wind chills in the single digits all day long so bundle up.

A wave of energy will ride the jet stream over western Oklahoma tonight resulting in a few flurries for western and central Oklahoma tonight through the first half of tomorrow.

A dusting to a half-inch of snow is possible in northwestern Okla.

Warmer air returns to the Sooner State by the end of the work week with highs in the 60s for Thursday and Friday.

A front will cool our temps to the 40s for the weekend and rain is possible Sunday.

A bigger storm system is possible early next week with the potential of showers and thunderstorms transitioning to a winter mix.

Stay tuned for the latest on this potential winter storm.
