front. Travel impacts will be possible with the potential for
accumulating snow greatest along and north of I-40. A north wind
will gust to 30 to 40 mph behind the front.

In addition to the potential travel impact from accumulating snow,
dangerous wind chills are likely Saturday night into Sunday morning.
Wind chills in the single digits are expected as temperatures drop
into the teens across much of the area with north winds at 10 to
20 mph.

days, so continue to monitor this situation. Some areas of
northeastern Oklahoma and northwestern Arkansas could experience
significant winter weather impacts given the snow potential, cold
temperatures, and strong wind. contains additional information.
