Late Wednesday night into Thursday, wind chills will dip below zero at times; some spots might even sink into the negative teens!
The cold will stick around for Monday with temperatures only rising into the mid-20s under mostly cloudy skies. As the storm pulls away the winds will bring in much colder air for the week ahead. This is a minor system with low impact, however, we could pick up a couple of inches of snow. But winds from the northwest, gusting more than 20 miles per hour at times, make it feel like the teens.
Temperatures the next several days are well below normal in the 20s.
Temperatures will moderate a bit during the day, but it's likely we won't get above freezing today in northeast Oklahoma. As of right now, the time frame for some snow to push through is late Saturday into Sunday morning.
Arctic air rushed into the region on Christmas Day as winds gusted up to 40 miles per hour. This combined with a light breeze out of the northwest is making it feel almost 10 to 15 degrees colder. The next best chance to make a run at some records will be on Thursday.
High temperatures for our Thursday will be pretty close to 10 degrees; only zero if you're headed for the ski slopes, where the temperature may remain subzero.

Those bitter cold temperatures in the teens should hold for Friday and Saturday, with a chance for some snow showers on Saturday.
As mentioned above, Monday will be cold with a scattered snow chance. We'll see more sunshine on Tuesday and highs will be in the upper 20s.
