OKLAHOMA CITY – Arctic air will dominate Oklahoma and temperatures will be 30 degrees below average all week!

Today’s highs will only reach the 20s and 30s with increasing clouds.

Strong northerly winds will result in wind chills in the teens and 20s.

A few flurries are possible today through tomorrow.

Cold temperatures will coincide with a storm system this weekend.

Saturday we can expect a cold rain for southern Oklahoma, a mix of rain and snow for central Oklahoma and heavy, wet snow for northern Oklahoma.

The ground is still very warm so accumulating snow is not expected.

Wet snow is possible Sunday.

Light accumulations on grassy surfaces and trees will be possible for northern Oklahoma.

The 40s will return next week, which will feel like a heat wave after this cold snap!

Snow Potential:  Saturday looks warm enough to feature cold rain mixed with a little wet snow, and snow is possible on Sunday. The chances are higher in northern Oklahoma.

Stay tuned for the latest.
