The National Weather Service in Tulsa has issued a wind advisory for Wednesday night.

The National Weather Service says northwesterly winds of 20 to 30 mph and gusting 40 to 45 mph with locally higher gusts will be possible this evening and overnight tonight behind a cold front moving through the region.

Christmas decorations that are not tightly fastened to the ground or sturdy objects could easily blow away. Also you will probably feel your home or apartment shake with some of the higher gusts," said News On 6 Chief Meteorologist Travis Meyer.

"We will continue to monitor through the night. Also, some light snow will be possible mainly north of Tulsa during the early morning hours but should not have a major effect on driving conditions. Still be aware of possible slick spots north of Tulsa if some snow melts and refreezes during the early morning," Meyer said.

The advisory is from 9 p.m. tonight to 7 a.m. tomorrow and covers the following counties:

Pushmataha
Muskogee
Mayes
Ottawa
Rogers
Pawnee
Creek
Choctaw
Delaware
Washington
Osage
Craig
Tulsa
Nowata
Pittsburg
Okfuskee
Wagoner
Latimer
Haskell
McIntosh
Okmulgee

Meyer said the weather pattern is changing tonight, bringing much more active weather to Oklahoma over the next several weeks.
