increase Sunday night as elevated instability becomes more
favorable. The shower activity will end Monday as the storm system

be heaviest across northeast Oklahoma with amounts in the one-half
to one inch range.

More rain is expected Tuesday into Tuesday night as the next storm

Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas before ending Tuesday night into
Wednesday morning. Any impacts from the light snow are expected to
be minimal.
