A cold front will move through the area later this evening, and temperatures will drop as much as 25 degrees from Wednesday’s, Ponca City Emergency Management Director Paula Cain said Thursday morning.
“Behind the front we expect very strong winds from the north at 25-35 mph, and gusts reaching 45-50,” she said. “These wind speeds can easily break tree limbs and even cause some roof damage. Make sure any outdoor equipment is secured. Another result of the front will be reaching below freezing temps early Saturday morning in many areas of the state.
“Freezing temperatures could be possible Saturday night as well. If you want to protect you outdoor plants, have them covered Saturday night and bring potted plants inside. After a cold and windy Saturday, another warm-up will begin on Sunday, reaching 65°,” Cain said.
The National Weather Service in Norman has already issued some advisories for the next few day that include Kay County.
Wind Advisory 7 p.m. today through 7 a.m. Friday.
Freeze Watch from late Friday night until Saturday morning, with a low temp of 27°.
With these conditions for the weekend, dress in layers and pack blankets if you plan to be outdoors.
