Springs to Jay to McAlester will remain near or below freezing

over portions of northeast Oklahoma. Freezing rain and sleet will
become more focused across northeast Oklahoma this evening with
highest ice and sleet accumulations generally west of U.S.
Highway 75.

THURSDAY through FRIDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
SATURDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.

with highest amounts expected across southeast Oklahoma into
northwest Arkansas.
