Many Oklahomans will wake up to some of the chilliest temperatures of the season early Friday, but a warming trend isn't far away.

The National Weather Service has issued a freeze warning for six counties in far western Oklahoma and a frost warning for 29 counties in central sections of the state until 8 a.m.

Clear skies and light winds will allow temperatures to fall into the lower 30s in far western Oklahoma and into the middle 30s over the frost area, forecasters said. Temperatures are forecast to rebound and conditions should remain dry over the next seven days.

On Thursday, skies were mostly clear and high temperatures ranged from 61 degrees in Bartlesville and Tulsa to 73 degrees in Guymon, forecasters said. The mercury peaked at 63 degrees in Enid, Guthrie and Oklahoma City.

Clear skies are forecast for western Oklahoma and partly cloudy conditions are expected in the east on Friday as highs range from the upper 50s to the low 70s in the far west. Lows should fall into the 30s and 40s, the weather service said.

Skies should be mostly sunny on Saturday in all but the Panhandle, where mostly cloudy conditions are expected, the weather service said. High temperatures should range from the mid-50s in the Panhandle to 60s and 70s elsewhere.

Skies should turn partly cloudy on Sunday in all but the Panhandle, where mostly cloudy conditions are expected. Highs should reach the 60s and 70s before falling into the 30s and 40s Sunday night, forecasters said.

Mostly clear skies will be the rule Monday and Tuesday. Highs should reach the 60s and 70s and lows should fall into the 30s and 40s.
