High temperatures Tuesday will struggle to reach the 40s, with wind chills in the 30s throughout the day.

Overnight lows will fall into the 17-to-27 degree range across the state early Wednesday morning, according to the National Weather Service Norman forecast office. This hard freeze will also end the growing season.

Temperatures will slowly rebound through the weekend, with highs returning to near 60 degrees by Friday.

Forecasters say there is a near daily chance for rain from late Thursday through early next week.
