This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for a Large Part of Arkansas.

.DAY ONE...Overnight

A few thunderstorms will be possible during the overnight
period. While the threat for severe weather should remain low, a
few storms may produce some small hail, mainly across the
southeastern half of the area.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday Through Thursday

Arctic air will filter into the state on Saturday behind a strong
cold front moving through the state. This may result in some
light accumulating snow primarily across northern portions of the
state Saturday and Saturday night. Some snow may also fall across
western sections of the state as well. At this time, accumulations
should remain less than and inch, with no significant impacts
expected. However, some locally higher amounts may be seen in the
higher terrain, which may create some isolated hazardous driving

Breezy winds will also be seen during the day on Saturday. Expect
northwest winds of 20 to 30 mph, with gusts over 35 mph possible.
The strongest winds will be across the northern half of the area.
This will create rough conditions on area bodies of water, and
could cause difficulty for some high profile vehicles. Winds will
relax by late Saturday night into Sunday morning. However, there
will be enough wind in combination with much colder air to cause
wind chill values to drop down into the teens and 20s late
Saturday night into early Sunday for most of the state. Some
single digit wind chills will also be possible in the far
northwest portion of the area.

The threat for organized hazardous weather will then become low
beyond the daytime hours on Sunday.

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

ONSET...This evening.

AREA...Much of Eastern Oklahoma and Western Arkansas.
ONSET...After Midnight.

AREA...Northeast Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas.
ONSET...After Midnight.

AREA...Northeast Oklahoma.
ONSET...Late This Evening.

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.

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.

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. contains additional information.
