Northeastern Oklahoma Braces For Blustery Weather

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Much colder air will be surging across the state on Thursday with temperatures expected to be near the freezing mark by Friday morning.

Gusty northerly winds will keep temperatures near the freezing mark throughout the day Friday.

News On 6 meteorologist Dick Faurot said there is concern because data suggests, at 5,000-feet, winds will be from the southwest and temperatures will be in the 50s.

"This very warm layer of air aloft, riding over the much colder air near the surface, sets up a potential wintry mess," Faurot said. "The liquid precipitation falling through the warmer air aloft will then encounter the much colder air near the surface with the possibility of freezing rain, sleet, or just a very cold rain with some ice pellets mixed in."

It is possible temperatures will be at or below freezing all day on Friday.

The system will be moving in during the overnight hours and the cold front will be arriving later Thursday. This combination will provide a widespread area of showers and some storms.

There is potential for an inch or more of rain by the time it all comes to an end later Friday, Faurot said.
