NORTHWEST ARKANSAS. THE RAIN HAS BEEN INCREASING IN BOTH COVERAGE
AND INTENSITY DURING THE PAST HOUR. TEMPERATURES HAD DROPPED TO 32
DEGREES OR LESS... ROUGHLY ALONG AND NORTH OF I 44... SO SOME LIGHT

ARKANSAS.

COVERAGE ACROSS EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS. AN

FREEZING RAIN ALONG AND NORTH OF INTERSTATE 44. THIS INCLUDES MUCH
OF THE  TULSA METRO AREA... AS TEMPERATURES FALL BELOW 32 DEGREES.
