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...Early Evening.

DISCUSSION...
Areas of freezing drizzle may develop this 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.
