DISCUSSION...
Southerly winds gusting in the 20 to near 40 mile per hour range
will remain possible across Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest
Arkansas this afternoon as a low pressure system and cold front
approach from the west. The gusty winds and warmer temperatures
will allow for a limited fire danger potential through sunset.

the cold front forecast to move into the region Thursday morning.

TUESDAY...Winter Weather Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
The strong cold front will push into Northeast Oklahoma Thursday
morning...into Southeast Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas early
Thursday afternoon and exit the region mid to late afternoon
Thursday. Behind the frontal passage...quickly falling
temperatures along with a potential of a light wintry mix of
rain...freezing rain...and sleet transitioning to light snow will
be possible through Thursday evening. At this time...snow and or
ice accumulations look to be light across the region as
precipitation chances are forecast to taper off Thursday afternoon
for much of Eastern Oklahoma and Thursday evening for far Eastern
Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.

Much colder temperatures will also spread across the region behind
the front for the weekend and continue into next week. This will
allow for forecast morning wind chill values in the single digits
to lower teens to be possible. Early next week another low
pressure system looks to move through the Plains allowing for
another potential for light rain and or snow across the region.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PLANNING STATEMENT...
There may be winter weather impacts Thursday afternoon and
evening across parts of Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
Accumulations will continue to be refined over the next 24 hours.
Continue to monitor latest forecasts and updates.
