TULSA, Oklahoma -

A winter storm will arrive in Oklahoma this weekend, just in time for the official arrival of the winter season.

News On 6 meteorologist Mike Grogan wrote in his blog that the storm system will arrive in two parts.

"First, the Arctic cold front is the leading edge of that cold air mass that will envelop the area by Friday morning. There won't be a lot of moisture with this feature, but temperatures may drop to near freezing that day, which means any showers or drizzle that occurs could freeze on contact. The main threat of that would be north and west of Tulsa," he wrote.

As if part one isn't bad enough, Grogan says part two could be even worse.

"The second part of the system is a powerful upper level low that drops along the west coast over the next day before making a bee-line towards Oklahoma this weekend. That is the feature that will draw up a big fetch of moisture. It's almost a guarantee now that it'll be precipitating this weekend. The question is how cold the air may be. Just 10 degrees difference in air temperature may separate an ice storm from plain rain and even severe weather."
