Hang onto your earmuffs - the winter blast is not over yet for Oklahoma. Northeastern Oklahoma experienced brutal wind chill values overnight and can expect freezing temperatures throughout the weekend.

Clear overnight skies have already been replaced by clouds streaming in from the southwest, WARN Team Meteorologist Dick Faurot says in his weather blog.

"This is a similar scenario to what produced the widespread snow cover we now have except for the fact this system will be moisture starved," Faurot said.

"It will have enough punch to wring some precipitation out of the air by this evening and through the overnight hours, ending Sunday morning."

Very light freezing drizzle or ice crystals may fall during the night Saturday to Sunday morning. Though it isn't expected to be much - it could cause some problems for travelers with sub-freezing temperatures and the remains of this week's snow storm still on the ground and roads.

"Another surge of colder air will arrive Sunday night with brisk northerly winds on Monday and highs again only in the 20s," Faurot said.

Lots of sunshine Tuesday and Wednesday should finally get temperatures back at or above freezing.
