UNDATED -- Thanksgiving Day promises to be a blustery one. A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for portions of Oklahoma and Arkansas through 3 p.m. Thursday afternoon as light freezing rain and sleet are possible.

The Tulsa metro area was removed from the weather advisory late Thursday morning.

"Rain mixed with sleet and freezing rain will be possible for the next few hours across east central Oklahoma," said News On 6 WARN Team meteorologist Alan Crone.

Temperatures are near freezing across eastern Oklahoma, and some icing is occurring on elevated surfaces but ground temperatures are very warm and no major travel issues are anticipated."

This system will pass to the east of the area by this afternoon, but cold and windy conditions will remain.

"Enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday, but please use a little caution through midday into the early afternoon period across eastern Oklahoma," Crone said.

"Big coat weather will be the call."

On Monday another system will arrive with a chance of showers or even a snow flake or two depending upon the exact timing.
