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...Far Northeast Oklahoma and Far Northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...Ongoing.

DISCUSSION...
Areas of freezing drizzle may continue to develop this afternoon and
into the evening across portions of northeast Oklahoma, primarily
along and north of Highway 412, and transition eastward into far
northwest Arkansas late tonight. Locations near the Kansas and
Missouri borders will be most susceptible to seeing a light glaze of
ice on elevated surfaces, including bridges, overpasses, and
untreated roadways. Any freezing drizzle that develops will exit the
area from west to east by Sunday morning.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.
SUNDAY AND MONDAY...No Hazards.
TUESDAY...Winter Weather Potential.
WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Precipitation chances return late Monday night, increasing
Tuesday into Tuesday night as a low pressure system lifts
northeastward into the Plains region. A shallow cold airmass
is expected to exist across the area ahead of the system,
providing for some potential for a wintry mix of freezing rain
and snow across parts of eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas.
Currently, there appears potential for both accumulating ice and
snow in parts of the area on Tuesday, although uncertainties
remain in the details. Continue to monitor future forecasts and
statements over the coming days.
