Cooler temperatures and winter weather are expected across Oklahoma for the next several days as an arctic air mass continues to push into the state.

The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for Pawnee and Osage counties in north-central Oklahoma early on Saturday, but later cancelled it when temperatures remained above freezing and prevented accumulation.

A chance for light freezing drizzle and snow was expected to continue on Sunday, with daytime highs ranging from the 20s to lower 50s across the state.

Mostly cloudy skies are forecast for Monday with a chance for snow flurries and daytime highs in the 30s and 40s. Overnight lows are expected to range from the teens to mid 30s across the state.

A slight chance for rain or snow is expected to continue on Tuesday with highs in the 30s and 40s and overnight lows in the teens and 20s.

Partly cloudy skies are expected on Wednesday, with highs in the 40s and 50s and lows ranging from the upper teens to lower 30s.
