COLD BLAST UPDATE
Not much has changed in my forecast. I am still thinking that the Arctic cold fron will move through the metro around 5pm. I also have kept my highs for Thursday and Friday the same in the upper teens. I HAVE CHANGED SATURDAY MORNINGS LOW FROM 2 TO 4. Nevertheless, I expect dangerous wind chills. I expect a wind chill advisory to be issued for much of northern and central Oklahoma. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY HAS BEEN ISSUED BY THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN TULSA FOR EASTERN OKLAHOMA, WHERE 1-2 INCHES OF SNOW AND STRONG WINDS WILL LEAD TO POOR VISIBILITY. Wind chill values Thursday will range from -10 to 0. HYPOTHERMIA AND FROSTBITE REMAIN THE PREDOMINANT HAZARD TO ANYBODY GOING OUTSIDE THURSDAY. UPDATES TO FOLLOW.
