THIS OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHWEST AND WEST CENTRAL ARKANSAS AS WELL AS
MUCH OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT.

THUNDERSTORMS WITH DANGEROUS LIGHTNING.
RISK...LIMITED.
AREA...EXTREME SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA.
ONSET...AFTER MIDNIGHT.

DISCUSSION...
RAIN SHOWERS ARE EXPECTED TO BECOME MORE WIDESPREAD ACROSS EASTERN
OKLAHOMA AND WESTERN ARKANSAS TONIGHT AS A COLD FRONT MOVES THROUGH
THE REGION. ELEVATED INSTABILITY WILL BE ADEQUATE ENOUGH FOR ISOLATED
THUNDERSTORMS TO DEVELOP LATE TONIGHT ACROSS EXTREME SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA.

THE RAIN WILL TRANSITION TO A WINTRY MIX OF SLEET/SNOW AND RAIN ACROSS
OSAGE AND PAWNEE COUNTIES LATE TONIGHT. NO ACCUMULATION IS EXPECTED WITH
THIS WINTRY ACTIVITY.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION NOT EXPECTED.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
SATURDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY...NO HAZARDS.
THURSDAY...WINTER WEATHER POTENTIAL.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
RAIN CHANCES WILL END FROM NORTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST SATURDAY.
ISOLATED SLEET CAN NOT BE RULED OUT ENTIRELY SATURDAY MORNING
NORTHWEST OF INTERSTATE 44. HOWEVER...SHOULD ANY SLEET OCCUR...
TEMPERATURES ABOVE FREEZING WOULD PREVENT ACCUMULATION.

ARCTIC AIR WILL GRIP THE REGION BY TUESDAY AND WILL MAINTAIN COLD
WEATHER THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK. MEANWHILE...A STRONG UPPER
STORM SYSTEM WILL BE APPROACHING FROM THE DESERT
SOUTHWEST...INTERACTING WITH THIS COLD AIR. THIS WILL SET THE STAGE
FOR THE POTENTIAL OF A WINTRY MIX BEGINNING THURSDAY AND POSSIBLY ON
INTO NEXT WEEKEND. IF ANYONE HAS TRAVEL PLANS AROUND THE NEW YEAR OR
THE WEEKEND AFTER...STAY TUNED TO THE LATEST FORECASTS.
