MUCH OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

SNOW ACCUMULATION.
RISK...LIMITED.
AREA...FAR NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS.

ONSET...AROUND MIDNIGHT NEAR KANSAS BORDER...CLOSER TO 3 AM I-40 SOUTH.

DISCUSSION...

AN ARCTIC COLD FRONT WILL PUSH INTO THE REGION TONIGHT...USHERING
IN MUCH COLDER TEMPERATURES...STRONG NORTH WINDS...GUSTING 30 TO
40 MPH AND SINGLE DIGIT WIND CHILLS TO NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA AND
NORTHWEST ARKANSAS BY MORNING. THERE IS ALSO A CHANCE OF VERY
LIGHT SNOW OR FLURRIES ACROSS FAR NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA INTO
NORTHWEST ARKANSAS...WITH LITTLE TO NO ACCUMULATION EXPECTED.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION NOT EXPECTED.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
THURSDAY...HIGH WIND POTENTIAL...DANGEROUS WIND CHILL POTENTIAL.
FRIDAY...WINTER WEATHER POTENTIAL...DANGEROUS WIND CHILL POTENTIAL.
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY...WINTER WEATHER POTENTIAL.
MONDAY AND TUESDAY...THUNDERSTORM POTENTIAL...WINTER WEATHER POTENTIAL.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...

SINGLE DIGIT WIND CHILLS RESULTING FROM STRONG NORTH WINDS BEHIND
AN ARCTIC COLD FRONT ARE EXPECTED ACROSS NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA AND
NORTHWEST ARKANSAS THURSDAY MORNING. WINDS WILL GRADUALLY SUBSIDE
DURING THE DAY...BUT WILL STAY UP ENOUGH TO REALLY CAUSE WIND
CHILLS TO DROP THURSDAY NIGHT. WIND CHILLS BETWEEN ZERO AND 10
BELOW ARE FORECAST ACROSS NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST
ARKANSAS...AND BETWEEN ZERO AND 10 ABOVE ALONG AND SOUTH OF I-40.

A VERY ACTIVE PATTERN IS SETTING UP ACROSS THE CONTINENTAL UNITED
STATES AS WE HEAD INTO THE WEEKEND...CONTINUING INTO EARLY NEXT
WEEK. THE COMBINATION OF REINFORCING SHOTS OF COLD AIR AND
INCREASING MOISTURE FROM THE SOUTH IN ADVANCE OF UPPER LEVEL STORM
SYSTEMS IN THE DESERT SOUTHWEST WILL RESULT IN WINTER WEATHER
POTENTIAL AND POSSIBLE IMPACTS DURING THIS TIME FRAME. IT IS STILL
TOO EARLY TO GET INTO THE DETAILS JUST YET...BUT IF YOU HAVE
TRAVEL PLANS THIS WEEKEND STAY TUNED TO THE LATEST UPDATES.
COMMUTING TO WORK MAY ALSO BE AFFECTED NEXT WEEK AS WELL.
