Enjoy the slightly warmer weather while you can


If we thought Tuesday morning brought some cold weather to the state, we’re being warned that even “colder” weather is on its way this weekend.

Oklahoma Climatologist Gary McManus said the extreme temperatures won’t be as severe as what we experienced in February 2021 when Winter Storm Uri pounded the state.

“No, it doesn’t look like it will last as long, nor get quite as cold, but we could possibly maybe end up from Monday (but maybe Friday) through much of next week seeing temps below freezing and also dipping well into the single digits and maybe lower.”

“Seems pretty certain we’ll warm up for a few days after today, then see a push of Arctic air on Friday, then another reinforcing blast with COLD COLD COLD air around Monday. That latter
blast will possibly come with a major winter storm,” he wrote in the Tuesday morning weather update.
