The high for Thanksgiving day is only expected to reach the mid 30's.

"Thanksgiving may be one of the coldest thanksgivings since the early 90s," News On 6 Meteorologist Alan Crone said. "The morning may start out around 38 but readings will fall into the mid 30s by the afternoon with gusty north winds creating wind chill values in the teens."

But the coldest temperatures of the year are expected on Friday.  Temperatures Friday morning should dip into the teens or low 20's in the early morning hours. Temperatures will rebound as the day goes on, with highs in the 40's to near 50. 

Cold temperatures weren't the only change in the weather.  A front brought rain, heavy thunderstorms and high winds to some parts of northeastern Oklahoma Wednesday night.

Several Oklahoma counties, including Tulsa, Rogers, Wagoner, Creek, and Rogers, were under a tornado watch until 4 a.m. Thursday.
