WW)--Cold winter weather is expected to arrive this weekend along with the new year across the local area and much of the state. The National Weather Service is forecasting a chance of rain and possibly snow locally beginning Friday night as overnight temperatures fall into the teens. There will be a chance of snow or a winter mix through late Saturday afternoon with a local high near 30. The low in Enid Saturday night could slip into the single digits. The winter blast will be the result of a strong winter storm currently resulting in frigid temperatures in the Pacific Northwest and heavy snow in the mountains in Northern California and Nevada. Emergency warming shelters were opened throughout Oregon and western Washington as temperatures plunged into the teens and forecasters said an arctic blast would last for several days. Sunday’s snow showers blew into the Pacific Northwest from the Gulf of Alaska, dumping up to 6 inches across the Seattle area. But until this weekend, above-normal temperatures are expected in the Enid area.

SB)--Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt and legislative leaders said Monday that despite record-high revenue available to spend next year, they expect most state agency budgets to remain flat. Budget projections presented to the State Board of Equalization, a state panel led by Stitt, show there will be more than $10.3 billion available to spend for the fiscal year that begins July 1. But Stitt and Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Roger Thompson said after the meeting they want to keep at least $2 billion in reserves. The Legislature last year appropriated about $8.3 billion and set aside more than $700 million in savings. The Board of Equalization will meet again in February to determine the final amount of revenue that will be available to spend on next year's budget.
