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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

SEVERE THUNDERSTORM.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Southeast Oklahoma and West Central Arkansas.
ONSET...This evening.

WINTER WEATHER.
SNOW ACCUMULATION.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Much of Eastern Oklahoma and Western Arkansas.
ONSET...After Midnight.

ICE ACCUMULATION.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Northeast Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...After Midnight.

SIGNIFICANT WINDS.
RISK...Limited.
AREA...Northeast Oklahoma.
ONSET...Late This Evening.

DISCUSSION...
A strong arctic cold front will move through the area during
the overnight hours. Ahead of the front, increasing moisture and
large scale forcing will result in scattered elevated
thunderstorms across eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas.
Elevated instability in conjunction with a strongly sheared
environment will be in place mainly south of Interstate 40,
resulting in a large hail potential with the strongest storms.
The most likely timing for strong storms will be this evening into
very early Saturday morning.

The strong cold front will move into northeast Oklahoma between
10pm and midnight, with very strong wind gusts and a dramatic
drop in temperature accompanying the frontal passage. Rain will
quickly transition to snow as the colder air moves in, with a
brief threat of light freezing rain during the transition. The
speed of the system will limit the amount of snow accumulation,
but some areas of far northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas
could see around an inch of snow. Any ice accumulations will
remain limited.  Strong north winds gusting around 40 mph will
result in dangerous wind chill values in the single digits through
early Sunday morning.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Local Spotter Activation May Be Needed.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.
SATURDAY...Winter Weather Potential...High Wind Potential.
SUNDAY...No Hazards.
MONDAY and TUESDAY...High Wind Potential.
WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
Light snow will continue into Saturday morning, before moving
east of the area by Saturday night. The cold temperatures will
persist through Sunday, but the airmass will moderate quickly
as strong and gusty south winds develop Monday with temperatures
quickly rising back above normal.
