Another cold front will cross the region over the next 15 hours
with the wind picking up from the north tomorrow. Otherwise
no significant weather is expected. Some mid and high clouds
will continue to stream over the area...but VFR conditions will
prevail. There is a chance for a few stratocumulus clouds to
develop tomorrow...but even if some form...a ceiling is not expected
.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 351 PM CST THU FEB 11 2016/
A cold front will move south across the forecast area Friday
giving us a glancing blow of a very cold airmass that will settle
into the Midwest and Ohio Valley. An upper level disturbance will
move across the area Sunday and Sunday night resulting in a
chance of rain. Temperatures may remain cold enough in the valleys
of northwest Arkansas for freezing rain, and adjacent parts of
northeast Oklahoma may be cold enough at the onset of
precipitation for a brief period of freezing rain. At this time,
ice accumulations do not look too significant, but this will need
to be monitored in the deeper valleys of northwest Arkansas where
the cold air will hang on the longest.
Once this system moves out, mild to warm air will overspread the
area for much of next week. By late next week, unseasonable
warmth appears likely, and would not be surprised to see the first
80 degree readings of the year show up before the end of the week
in parts of eastern Oklahoma.
Stayed close to guidance temperatures the next couple days.
