OKLAHOMA CITY - After another mild day across the state, things are changing as a cold front moves across the state.

This cold front will bring much cooler temperatures that will continue right through the weekend.

Friday night, an area of low pressure will move across the area along the slowly moving cold front.

A chance of rain and maybe even some sleet and snow are possible late Friday as temperatures continue to cool.

Friday evening we can expect partly cloudy skies under gusty north winds but mainly dry conditions. Later Friday evening and overnight, showers and maybe a few rumbles of thunder will develop across the state with the best chances being southeast of the metro.

Temperatures will continue to fall to the low to middle 30s across northern and western half of the state. So, some of the rain showers could mix or change of over to a little light snow or sleet for a time.

Ground and air temperatures will likely stay at or above freezing overnight. So any accumulations if any at all would be on the grass or car tops.

Any rain or snow showers will quickly decrease by early Saturday. By afternoon, it will be dry conditions with partly to mostly cloudy skies and a gusty north wind. Highs will be in the upper 30s to lower 40s.

Arctic cold front is still on the way and will arrive late Monday as highs on Tuesday will not reach the freezing mark.
