Forecasters calling for frigid temperatures over next few days

STILLWATER, Okla. — Stillwater residents took advantage of the mild temperatures on Saturday.

Golfers were golfing, bikers were cycling, families were picnicking and little girls were feeding the ducks at the lake.

But get ready.

Winter is coming back.

Oklahomans enjoyed temperatures that rose into the low 60s on Saturday, but an arctic blast was expected to push in overnight, sending those temperatures plummeting.

Forecasters are not predicting any precipitation in the next several days, but they are predicting icy cold temperatures.

A cold front pushed in from northwestern Oklahoma late Saturday night and moved southeast through the state.

Light, freezing drizzle or fog may develop behind the front into early Sunday morning across portions of central and southern Oklahoma.

Travel problems are not expected, although a few slick spots might develop on overpasses.

The forecast for Sunday calls for a high of 30 degrees with cloudy, windy conditions. The wind will blow 30 mph from the north. The wind chill is expected to be in the single digits.

Sunday night, the temperatures are expected to fall to a low of 17 degrees.
