.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 833 PM CST Sat Jan 14 2017/

DISCUSSION...
Large area of freezing rain continues to move across western
and northern Oklahoma, where temperatures range from 30-32.
A smaller area of mainly rain is moving across south central
Oklahoma. Overall, most of the precipitation is occurring along
and north of a slightly stronger 85h flow. This pattern is
expected to shift gradually northward this evening into the
overnight.

Although steady moderate rain may shift northward, widely
scattered precipitation and drizzle will likely continue.
As far as temperatures, most areas will experience nearly steady
temperatures overnight with a north to northeast wind. This will
certainly change early Sunday as an upper trough approaches and
surface winds become northeast and east.

Will need to watch trends across southeast Oklahoma for the
potential of fog. Rather humid air is located across far
southeast Oklahoma and southwestern Arkansas and this will
eventually return to southeast parts of the forecast area.

Overall do not expected to change current headlines.

DISCUSSION...
