The first Arctic airmass of the year will inch into Oklahoma later this week, just in time to make Thanksgiving cold.
Here in Oklahoma, we experience four distinct seasons. Each season brings with it some sibilance of adverse weather and one of my favorite things is making fun of how the media plays up the first event of each season.
In the Fall it’s always that first blast of Arctic air. You would think cold air delivered a deadly communicable disease with it. Local weather “talent” uses a stern voice to help exemplify the event. Hell, this first real cold front of the season is not even arriving wet from the looks of things. It is just cold air and some wind!
So, make sure you go to the grocery store and stock up on everything for at least 8 hours of 45-degree daytime temps followed by temperatures in the mid to upper 20′s while you are sleeping. Please, PLEASE ensure you have a light jacket at the ready and that you cover your plants so you can prolong their eminent winter death one more week.
