...ICE ACCUMULATION POTENTIAL CONTINUES INTO TONIGHT...

This Outlook is for Northwest and West Central Arkansas as well as
much of Eastern Oklahoma.

.DAY ONE...Tonight.

WINTER WEATHER.
SLEET ACCUMULATION.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Along and northwest of Interstate 44 in northeast Oklahoma.
ONSET...Ongoing through late evening.

ICE ACCUMULATION.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Along and northwest of a McAlester to Tahlequah to Huntsville Line.
ONSET...Ongoing.

DISCUSSION...
Widespread light freezing rain and sleet continue late this
afternoon across portions of eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas
to the northwest of a line from McAlester to Tahlequah to
Huntsville, with temperatures warm enough to support rain across
the rest of southeast Oklahoma and west central Arkansas. Ice
accumulations are expected to total around a tenth of an inch,
with perhaps as much as a tenth or two of sleet accumulation
in a few spots. Overall, the precipitation is expected to
diminish from southwest to northeast through the evening, although
drizzle and freezing drizzle potential will continue into early
tomorrow morning.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Spotter Activation Not Expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
SATURDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...High Wind Potential.
SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
An active pattern will remain across the area through the week,
with additional rounds of shower and thunderstorm activity
possible. This will result in more potential flooding and flash
flooding into the early part of the weekend, with the highest
amounts expected across southeast Oklahoma into northwest
Arkansas. Conditions may also favor strong thunderstorms on
Saturday afternoon and evening. Warm and dry weather will prevail
from late in the weekend into early next week.
