EASTERN OKLAHOMA/NORTHWEST ARKANSAS WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TULSA OK
845 PM CST SAT FEB 28 2015

OVERCAST SKIES AND MIXED WINTRY PRECIPITATION PLAGUED THE REGION
THIS AFTERNOON...AS COLD AIR REMAINED TRAPPED AT THE SURFACE...
WHILE WARM AND MOIST AIR SPREAD NORTHWARD OVER THE COLD AIR. THE
RESULT WAS A MIXED BAG OF SNOW...SLEET...FREEZING DRIZZLE AND
FREEZING RAIN. TEMPERATURES BY LATE IN THE DAY ONLY MANAGED TO WARM
INTO THE MID 20S TO LOWER 30S.

CONDITIONS AT MID EVENING CONSISTED OF CLOUDY SKIES AND COLD
TEMPERATURES. LIGHT PRECIPITATION REMAINS WIDESPREAD...BUT HAS
MOSTLY TRANSITIONED TO LIGHT FREEZING DRIZZLE AND LIGHT FREEZING
RAIN. SOME LIGHT RAIN WAS OBSERVED OVER PORTIONS OF FAR SOUTHEAST
OKLAHOMA WHERE TEMPERATURES HAVE WARMED AT OR JUST ABOVE FREEZING.
THE REST OF THE AREA REMAINS MIRED IN THE MID 20S TO AROUND 30
DEGREES. LIGHT EAST TO NORTHEAST WINDS WERE ALSO COMMON AROUND THE
AREA THIS EVENING.

LITTLE RELIEF FROM THE ONGOING CONDITIONS ARE OFFERED UP FOR THE
OVERNIGHT. AREAS OF LIGHT FREEZING DRIZZLE AND LIGHT FREEZING RAIN
WILL REMAIN COMMON INTO EARLY SUNDAY MORNING. THE FREEZING LINE WILL
SLOWLY LIFT NORTH...ALLOWING FOR A TRANSITION TO LIGHT RAIN...
HOWEVER THIS PROCESS WILL BE SLOW TO OCCUR. TEMPERATURES OVERNIGHT
WILL NOT FALL MUCH BELOW CURRENT LEVELS...WITH MID 20S TO LOWER 30S
TO REMAIN COMMON. BY MIDDAY SUNDAY...ALL OF THE AREA IS EXPECTED TO
HAVE WARMED AT OR ABOVE FREEZING...WITH SCATTERED AREAS OF LIGHT
RAIN TO LINGER OVER THE AREA. SUNDAYS HIGH TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED
TO PEAK IN THE RANGE OF LOWER 30S TO AROUND THE MID 40 DEGREE MARK.
CLOUDY SKIES AND LIGHT PRECIPITATION CHANCES WILL PERSIST INTO THE
EVENING HOURS TOMORROW...WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR SOME AREAS TO
TRANSITION BACK TO LIGHT FREEZING RAIN AS TEMPERATURES FALL BELOW
FREEZING ONCE AGAIN.
