Cold will linger in Oklahoma City

Relief is on the way from this week’s bitter cold weather, but it’s expected to be Saturday before daytime highs reach above freezing in Oklahoma City.

Today’s low at Will Rogers World Airport was 9 degrees at 8:35 a.m., about an hour after sunrise.

Brisk winds made it feel more like the single digits or teens below zero overnight, said Jonathan Kurtz, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Norman.

Tonight’s low is expected to drop to 10 above, but winds are expected to moderate and begin blowing from the south. Friday’s high should be 26.

That will make Friday the third consecutive day of below freezing afternoon highs in the city.

Highs Saturday are expected to hit the upper 30s. Forecasters say to look for a weather system to push more cold air into central Oklahoma next week.
