EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
The arctic airmass will remain over the region with very cold
temperatures expected again Wednesday morning. The coldest
readings will be across parts of far northeast Oklahoma and
northwest Arkansas where snow cover exists. Low temperatures
may dip a few degrees below zero in these areas although winds
are expected to be light.

A strong storm system is expected to develop into the Southern
Rockies late this week. Southerly low level flow will return to our
region ahead of this system, allowing for a warming trend to begin
Thursday and continue through the weekend. The main system will move
through the Southern Plains late this weekend, resulting in showers
and isolated thunderstorms across the area Saturday night and Sunday.
