Temperatures will be unseasonably warm on Tuesday, but winter-like weather will arrive in Oklahoma just in time for Thanksgiving Day.

The National Weather Service said Oklahoma's mild weather will last until Wednesday, when chances of rain will increase as a strong cold front moves through the state.

The front will develop showers and isolated thunderstorms on Wednesday, then exit the state early Thursday. Much colder air will be behind the front, lowering daytime temperatures to the 40s for Thanksgiving Day and through the end of the week.

Late in the week and into the weekend, clouds will return with a small chance of rain. Due to the cold air over Oklahoma, there may also be a slight chance of rain mixing with snow or just light snow or flurries, especially in northern parts of the state.

Fog is likely across the state Monday night. Skies will be mostly cloudy with lows in the 50s and 60s.

Tuesday will be partly sunny with highs in the 70s and 80s. Lows Tuesday night will be in the 50s and 60s.

Showers and thunderstorms are likely on Wednesday. Temperatures will be colder. Highs will range from the low 40s in northwestern Oklahoma to the 70s in the southeast. Lows will range from the upper 30s to the low 60s.

Skies will be partly cloudy on Thanksgiving Day with a chance of rain showers and snow flurries. Temperatures will be cold with highs in the 40s and 50s and lows in the 20s and 30s.

Friday will be mostly cloudy with highs in the 40s and 50s and lows in the 20s and 30s.
