EASTERN OKLAHOMA/NORTHWEST ARKANSAS WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TULSA OK
910 PM CST TUE MAR 3 2015

CLOUDY SKIES WERE COMMON OVER ALL OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN
ARKANSAS THIS AFTERNOON...WITH SOME SCATTERED LIGHT RAIN AND PATCHY
DRIZZLE OBSERVED AT TIMES. TEMPERATURES WERE WARMER...THANKS TO THE
RETURN OF SOUTHERLY WINDS. BY LATE AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES AROUND THE
AREA HAD PEAKED IN THE RANGE OF MID 40S TO LOWER 60S.

AT MID EVENING...OVERCAST CONDITIONS PREVAILED WITH SCATTERED RAIN
AND PATCHY DRIZZLE GRADUALLY INCREASING ACROSS THE AREA. THE
ANTICIPATED COLD FRONT HAD PUSHED INTO NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA...TO
AROUND THE INTERSTATE 44 CORRIDOR. THERE WAS LITTLE DIFFERENCE IN
TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE BOUNDARY...AS THE REALLY COLD AIR WAS
LAGGING WELL BEHIND THE FRONT. MID EVENING TEMPERATURES VARIED FROM
THE LOWER 40S TO AROUND 50 DEGREES.

THE COLD FRONT WILL CONTINUE A GRADUAL PUSH THROUGH THE REGION
OVERNIGHT...WITH INCREASING CHANCES FOR RAIN AND AN ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORM OR TWO OVER FAR SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA. AS THE COLD AIR
ARRIVES EARLY TOMORROW MORNING...A GRADUAL TRANSITION FROM RAIN TO A
MIX OF PRECIPITATION TYPES IS EXPECTED. TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO
FALL FOR MUCH OF THE DAY WEDNESDAY BEFORE LEVELING OFF. GUSTY NORTH
WINDS IN COMBINATION WITH THE MUCH COLDER AIR WILL RESULT IN
BITTERLY COLD WIND CHILL VALUES THROUGH THE DAY. THE WINTRY WEATHER
WILL LINGER INTO WEDNESDAY EVENING BEFORE A GRADUALLY CLEARING TREND
GETS UNDERWAY LATE TOMORROW INTO EARLY THURSDAY.
