TULSA, OK -- An arctic blast has arrived in northeastern Oklahoma.

Wind chill advisories are in effect for parts of the state as dangerously low temperatures settle in for the next couple of days.

News On 6 meteorologist Alan Crone says the cold air is firmly in place with readings in the teens Thursday morning.

Watch a check of overnight temperature gauges in the Tulsa area.

A wide area of northeastern Oklahoma and southeast Kansas saw light snow. Crone says no significant accumulation occurred.

The north winds at 10 to 15 mph will continue for most of the day.

Wind chill values will range as low as minus 3 degrees to 5 degrees across north-central Oklahoma Thursday, and many spots will struggle to reach or get above freezing.

The sun is expected to return on Friday, but temperatures will still be in the 30's and 40's.
