EXTENDED DISCUSSION...

THERE IS SOME POTENTIAL FOR WINTRY PRECIPITATION...POSSIBLY IN THE
FORM OF ICING OR A WINTRY MIX...FOR THE LATTER PART OF THE
UPCOMING WEEKEND ACROSS NORTHWEST ARKANSAS INTO NEIGHBORING FAR
NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA. A BACK DOOR COLD FRONT WILL PUSH INTO THE
REGION THIS WEEKEND. AN UPPER STORM SYSTEM IS THEN FORECAST TO
DEVELOP OVER THE PLAINS AND PROVIDE LIFT ATOP THIS COLD
AIR...WHICH IS MORE LIKELY TO REMAIN COLD ENOUGH TO SUPPORT WINTRY
PRECIPITATION OVER NORTHWEST ARKANSAS AND FAR NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA.
THERE REMAINS GREAT UNCERTAINTY AS TO HOW MUCH PRECIPITATION WILL
FALL INTO THE COLD AIR...SO STAY TUNED TO FORECAST UPDATES.
