Brace for a bitterly cold New Year’s Eve and Day. Temperatures will drop to the single digits in a large part of the state of Oklahoma.
In the words of State Climatologist Gary McManus at the Oklahoma Mesonet, “Mother Nature is saving the best (worst) for last AND first with another blast of the North Pole for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.”
His map of what the state can expect shows zero in the Panhandle while the western half of the state will see readings of one and 2 degrees in the north to 5, 6 and 7 degrees in the central and western areas of Oklahoma.
“You can imagine what it will be like if you add wind,” added McManus.
