An active weather pattern is forecast for much of this upcoming

with the better chances coming Tuesday and Tuesday night as a cold
front moves into the region. A few strong storms will be
possible, but the main concern will be locally heavy rainfall,
especially across southeast Oklahoma into northwest Arkansas.

Freezing temperatures are expected to build into the northern portion
of the region late Tuesday night with temperatures expected to remain
near or a bit above freezing across much of the area on Wednesday.
Some light icing will be possible during this period, generally
north of a line from Fayetteville to McAlester. A warming trend
will begin on Thursday and continue into next weekend, along with
chances for additional rainfall.
