NORMAN —

A cold front moving through Oklahoma is expected to bring chilly temperatures and widespread frost in the overnight hours.

The National Weather Service has issued freeze watches or frost advisories for much of Oklahoma. A strong cold front is expected to cause temperatures to plummet early Thursday, with lows predicted in the upper 20s or low 30s for areas including Lawton, Oklahoma City, Enid and Durant.

A freeze warning has been issued from midnight until 9 a.m. Thursday for McCurtain County in southeastern Oklahoma.

Forecasters predict sunny skies with daytime highs in the 60s from Thursday through the weekend. The weather service says another upper level disturbance and cold front could bring rain early next week.
