After weeks of unseasonably mild weather, Oklahomans got their first taste of winter weather as a cold front plodded across the state, quickly dropping temperatures.

The National Weather Service said the front was expected to continue pushing across Oklahoma, exiting the southeast counties early Wednesday afternoon. A few thunderstorms were expected to develop along and to the north of the front, mainly east of Interstate 35.

Daytime temperatures on Wednesday were to be much cooler, ranging from the upper 30s in northwest Oklahoma to the 60s in the southeast, with windy conditions expected to make it feel much colder. Skies are expected to clear Wednesday evening and winds will generally subside, leading to freezing temperatures across much of the state. Overnight lows are to range from the upper teens to mid 30s.

Daytime highs on Thanksgiving day are to range from the lower 40s in northwest Oklahoma to the lower 50s in the southeast.

Mostly cloudy skies are expected on Friday, with highs ranging from the mid 30s to the mid 50s and overnight lows in the 20s and 30s.

There is a chance for rain or snow on Saturday, with highs in the upper 30s to mid 40s and overnight lows in the 20s and 30s.

A chance of rain and snow is to continue on Sunday with highs ranging from the lower 40s to near 50 degrees and overnight lows again in the 20s and 30s.
