...WINTER WEATHER IMPACTS POSSIBLE THIS WEEK...

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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

WINTER WEATHER.
ICE ACCUMULATION.
RISK...Limited.
    AREA...South of Interstate 44.
    ONSET...Tonight.

WIND CHILL.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Along and North of Interstate 44.
ONSET...Early Monday Morning.

DISCUSSION...
With cold air in place, light freezing rain or freezing drizzle is
expected to expand tonight in areas south of Interstate 44 in
eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas. A glaze of ice will be
possible on elevated surfaces, including bridges and overpasses.
Locations primarily on the north side of the precipitation could
see sleet, as well, but sleet accumulations and impacts are not
anticipated. In addition, northerly winds, gusty at times, will
continue overnight and combined with the cold temperatures, will
lead to wind chills from 5 below to 5 above zero early Monday
morning along and north of Interstate 44.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday.
MONDAY...Winter Weather Potential...Dangerous Wind Chill Potential.
TUESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY...Winter Weather Potential.
FRIDAY...No Hazards.
SATURDAY...High Wind Potential.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
North winds combined with air temperatures in the teens and 20s
will result in single digit wind chill values through Monday
morning. An active upper level pattern will also begin at this
time and continue through midweek bringing several rounds of
wintry precipitation to the region. A combination of freezing
rain, sleet and snow are expected with areas from east central
into southeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas favored for
impacts from ice accumulations. Confidence in the occurrence of
precipitation through Thursday remains fairly high, however, the
locations where near surface temperatures remain at or below
freezing, especially during daylight hours, remains in question.
Details surrounding specific impacts will be worked out as the
event unfolds with amounts and timing of freezing rain, sleet and
snow becoming more certain.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PLANNING STATEMENT...
Emergency management and first responders should continue to
monitor forecasts for this week`s winter weather potential.
Consider readying plans to respond to winter weather impacts.
