accompany the front, which will move into northeast Oklahoma
by late afternoon. Light rain showers are possible this evening
across the area, along with plummeting temperatures by Friday
morning.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Gusty north winds are forecast on Friday behind the cold front.
Light precipitation may form after midnight Saturday into early
Saturday morning. There could be a mix of rain and freezing rain
across far northeast Oklahoma, and far northwest Arkansas. Any
accumulations are expected to be very light with minimal impacts
Saturday morning.

The temperatures will rebound nicely on Saturday afternoon and
Sunday, with highs in the 50s and 60s. The pattern remains
unsettled with southwest flow aloft. This will allow increased
potential for showers and thunderstorms beginning Sunday night
through Tuesday. The next strong cold front arrives by Tuesday
morning, with a chance for light wintry precipitation across
mainly eastern Oklahoma early Wednesday morning.
