This Outlook is for Northwest and West Central Arkansas as well as
much of Eastern Oklahoma.

.DAY ONE...Tonight.

WINTER WEATHER.
SNOW ACCUMULATION.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Northeast Oklahoma and Far Northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing.

SIGNIFICANT WINDS.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Eastern Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing.

DISCUSSION...
Rain showers becoming rain mixed with snow then transitioning to
light snow will continue to spread across much of Eastern Oklahoma
and Northwest Arkansas overnight tonight into Wednesday morning.
The greater snowfall potential will be mainly over Northeast
Oklahoma into far Northwest Arkansas where snow accumulations from
a dusting to near a half inch will be possible. Localized amounts
of a half inch to near one inch could be possible for locations
within the higher terrain of far Northwest Arkansas. Impacts look
to be minor as accumulations should mainly be on elevated and
grassy surfaces with wet roadways. Precipitation looks to taper
off from west to east Wednesday morning.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Spotter Activation Not Expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday.
WEDNESDAY...Winter Weather Potential...High Wind Potential.
THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY...No Hazards.
SUNDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
MONDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Lingering areas of light snow will remain possible across far
Eastern Oklahoma and far Northwest Arkansas Wednesday morning,
exiting by Wednesday afternoon. Winds should also begin to weaken
during the afternoon hours as the low pressure system departs the
region.

Much warmer weather is forecast for the weekend, and gusty south
winds will result in a very high fire danger across the region by
Sunday. An upper level system looks to move into the Plains for
early next week with a return of showers and thunderstorms, some
of which may bring a threat of heavy rainfall.
