Arctic air will finally arrive in Oklahoma

Nice weather has kept cabin fever and the dreary days of winter to a minimum - so far. Generally here in Oklahoma we pay dearly for nice weather and unfortunately payment is made with currency in the form of crappy weather.

This period will be no different with arctic air invading the state on Saturday evening and sticking around until the following weekend. Looking through the models, it'll appear early Wednesday morning host the coldest hours of the week with temps primarily in the teens for lows (see map).

And yes, there's a chance for a couple inches of snow to fall somewhere north of I40 but we're a little far out to tell what exactly will happen. We ARE in the middle of a sweeps period so rest assured that your favorite TV met will be right on top of any potential frozen precip.

Looking further out, the guys with the meteorological brains that surround my office say it'll be a cold remainder of the month. So long reasonable heating bills...
