OKLAHOMA CITY -- Today will be mostly cloudy with temperatures getting much warmer than normal for late November. Highs will top off in the mid 70s with humid conditions.

Later this afternoon into the evening, isolated severe storms are possible ahead of a cold front. There is a slight risk that these storms could contain hail, damaging winds and possibly an isolated tornado. The best chance for these isolated storms is east of Interstate 35 into eastern Oklahoma.

The cold front will move through the state overnight, bringing very strong winds ahead of and behind the cold front.

Waking up Thanksgiving morning will be very cold with temperatures getting into the 20s and wind chills in the teens. Thanksgiving will be cold throughout the day with highs only reaching the upper 30s and brisk north winds.

Black Friday morning will be especially cold with lows in the lower 20s. Strong south winds over the weekend will help temperatures rebound to seasonable with highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s under mostly sunny skies.
