AVIATION...
Low ceilings and visibility expected to continue tonight, with
drizzle and light rain possible. Ceilings and visibility is
expected to begin to gradually improve Sunday morning.

PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 228 PM CST Sat Dec 3 2016/

DISCUSSION...
Combination of closed upper low to our southwest and trough moving
through central and northern plains will continue to provide sufficient
lift for widespread light rain and drizzle overnight. As upper
trough moves east late tonight and Sunday most of the light precip
is expected to end as lift shifts east and drier air moves into
the area. Most areas should see some sun tomorrow with warmer temps
and light winds.

Upper low is then expected to lift east and northeast on Monday
and will provide parts of the area another chance for some rain.
Best chances will remain across the southeast.

By Monday night into Tuesday we see the first surge of colder
air filter south into the area from the north with an even
stronger surge on Wednesday. This will be accompanied by a
shortwave trough that could produce some light snow across the
northern half of Oklahoma. Will introduce some light snow
accumulations associated with this system. Otherwise, much colder
on Wednesday with temperatures remaining in the 30s north of I-40
with breezy north winds creating wind chills in the teens and
20s.

Not out of the question to see some single digit low temps
by Thursday morning across northern Oklahoma with temps area-wide
only climbing into the 30s Thursday.

Should see some moderating temperatures moving into the
weekend before another shot of cold air moves into the area
Sunday.
