Bitterly cold temperatures across Oklahoma

ENID, Okla. — Dozens of schools across Oklahoma called off classes as bitterly cold sub-zero temperatures and wind chill indexes were reported.

At Enid’s Woodring Airport on Monday, the temperature at 9:30 a.m. was zero degrees with a minus-18 wind chill.

The National Weather Service reported that cold temperatures and gusty winds associated with an arctic airmass will continue dangerous wind chills.

Enid’s forecast for Monday is sunny with a high near 23 and wind chill values as low as minus-12.

Tonight will be mostly clear, with a low around 14. Tuesday is sunny, with a high near 46, according to the NWS.

The Oklahoma City and Tulsa school districts — the state's two largest — are among those cancelling classes for Monday.

The National Weather Service issued a wind chill warning for Ottawa and Craig counties until noon Monday and a wind chill advisory for all but far southern and parts of southwestern Oklahoma.

Oklahoma Gas and Electric reported about 1,900 power outages Monday morning — about 1.200 of those in Pauls Valley. The Oklahoma Department of Transportation said drifting snow kept highways in north-central and northeastern Oklahoma slick in spots and crews continued plowing and treating the roads.
