What does the weather look like this weekend?

Saturday will be mostly cloudy and chilly with temperatures in the upper 40’s and low 50’s. Northwest Oklahoma will be significantly colder with highs in the 30’s. Snow will begin Saturday morning for the panhandle with precipitation gradually expanding southeast.

Weather 12-1

It will be warm enough for the metro to get plain rain once it arrives later in the evening. It’s a possibility we get small pockets of light ice on the west sides of the metro by Saturday night. Ground temperatures are working in our favor for keeping roads problem-free in the metro.

By Saturday night and early Sunday morning there could be some slick spots, especially on bridges and overpasses in northwest Oklahoma. Sunday looks dry and cold with highs in the 30’s and 40’s.

No signs of arctic air entering the first week of December.

Next week looks pretty quiet and chilly with a chance of rain by next Friday.

How to prepare my home for a freeze?

It's important to protect your pipes from the cold. Safety officials recommend protecting outside pipes by disconnecting garden hoses from your house and installing covers on outside faucets.

Also, if a sink is along an outside wall of your home, allow a trickle of water to run and open the cabinet doors to allow warm air to circulate.

The National Weather Service says when temperatures drop to 28°F or lower for a couple of hours you should bring pets indoors, protect sensitive vegetation, protect outdoor pipes and let indoor faucets drip and to turn off automatic sprinklers.

Space Heater Safety Tips (via CBS News)

If you're using a space heater, make sure it's not too close to things that can burn like upholstered furniture, clothing, a mattress, or bedding.

Never plug a space heater into an extension cord, always plug it directly into a wall outlet.

Remember to turn it off before leaving the room or going to bed. Keep it out of the reach of children and pets. Look for signs of malfunctions, especially on older models.

Make sure it has an automatic shutoff function.

Make sure you have working smoke detectors with fresh batteries. Change the battery twice a year.

On average, fires caused by portable heaters cause 65 deaths and 150 injuries a year, according to the US Fire Administration.

Overnight on Sunday, firefighters battled several house fires across Oklahoma as temperatures dropped below freezing.
