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

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

THUNDERSTORMS WITH DANGEROUS LIGHTNING.
RISK...VERY LIMITED.
AREA...CHOCTAW...SOUTHERN PUSHMATAHA AND SOUTHEAST LEFLORE COUNTIES.
ONSET...WELL AFTER MIDNIGHT TONIGHT.

WINTER WEATHER.
RISK...VERY LIMITED.
        AREA...NORTHWEST OSAGE AND PAWNEE COUNTIES.
        ONSET...WELL AFTER MIDNIGHT TONIGHT.

DISCUSSION...
MARGINAL ELEVATED INSTABILITY LATE TONIGHT IN SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA MAY
PRODUCE SOME ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS EMBEDDED WITHIN A LARGER RAIN
AREA.

LAYER TEMPERATURES BY LATE TONIGHT ARE FORECAST TO BECOME COLD
ENOUGH TO SUPPORT A RAIN/SLEET/SNOW MIX ACROSS NORTHWEST OSAGE AND
PAWNEE COUNTIES. HOWEVER...THE BULK OF THE PRECIPITATION WITH THE
APPROACHING STORM SYSTEM WILL HAVE MOVED EAST BY THE TIME THIS WILL
OCCUR...THUS ANY ACCUMULATING SLEET OR SNOW WILL BE A DUSTING AT
BEST. NO TRAVEL IMPACTS ARE EXPECTED.

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.
