TULSA, Oklahoma --  A cold front moved across Oklahoma on Wednesday, bringing strong winds and significantly colder temperatures.

Winds in western Oklahoma are gusting to more than 40 mph.  The News On 6 WARN Weather Team says those strong winds will spread east over central and eastern Oklahoma through Wednesday evening.

The high winds will combine with the colder temperatures to bring wind chills as low as the teens overnight in some parts of the state.

In his latest blog entry, meteorologist Alan Crone says the skies will clear Thursday morning, but that's not necessarily a good thing. 

"The clouds will clear out Thursday morning allowing the temperatures to drop into the freezing category again across the northern third of the state," Crone said.

The good news is that warmer weather should return just in time for the weekend.

Meteorologist Dick Faurot says the forecast for Thanksgiving week is getting more "interesting."  See what he means by reading his latest blog entry.
