EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
SNOW CONTINUES TO LOOK POSSIBLE ACROSS PORTIONS OF NORTHEAST
OKLAHOMA AND FAR NORTHWEST ARKANSAS FROM TUESDAY NIGHT INTO

ACROSS THE CENTRAL UNITED STATES. CURRENTLY...ONLY MINOR
ACCUMULATIONS AND IMPACTS ARE EXPECTED...BUT SOME UNCERTAINTY
CONCERNING THE EVENTUAL EVOLUTION OF THE STORM SYSTEM REMAINS.
ANYONE WITH TRAVEL PLANS DURING THIS TIME FRAME SHOULD CONTINUE TO
MONITOR FORECASTS OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.

GUSTY WINDS WILL DEVELOP AND DRIER AIR WILL POUR INTO THE AREA IN
THE WAKE OF THE DEPARTING STORM SYSTEM...LEADING TO AN INCREASE IN
THE FIRE SPREAD POTENTIAL LATE THIS WEEK.
