.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

WINTER WEATHER.
ICE ACCUMULATION.
RISK...LIMITED.
AREA...FAR NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA...MAINLY NEAR THE KANSAS BORDER.
ONSET...AFTER MIDNIGHT.

DISCUSSION...
A WARM AIR ADVECTION PATTERN SHOULD RESULT IN DEVELOPING

THE KANSAS BORDER.

MONDAY...WINTER WEATHER POTENTIAL.
TUESDAY...WINTER WEATHER POTENTIAL.
WEDNESDAY...WINTER WEATHER POTENTIAL.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
A SIGNIFICANT WINTER WEATHER EVENT IS SHAPING UP FOR PARTS OF
EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS OVER THE WEEKEND.

THE SHALLOW COOL AIRMASS CURRENTLY ACROSS THE AREA WILL LIFT SLOWLY
NORTH ON SATURDAY...RESULTING IN A LARGE TEMPERATURE SPREAD ACROSS
EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS. A REINFORCING SHOT OF
COLDER AIR WILL EVENTUALLY PUSH THE BOUNDARY BACK SOUTH INTO
SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA OVERNIGHT SATURDAY. THERE APPEARS TO BE ENOUGH
MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY TO SUPPORT A FEW THUNDERSTORMS NEAR THE
FRONT IN SOUTHEAST OKLAHOMA...BUT SEVERE WEATHER IS NOT EXPECTED.

THE COLD SHALLOW AIRMASS IS EXPECTED TO SETTLE ACROSS MUCH OF REGION
BY SUNDAY...WITH TEMPERATURES STRUGGLING TO REACH THE FREEZING MARK
ACROSS PORTIONS OF NORTHEAST OKLAHOMA AND FAR NORTHWEST ARKANSAS.
MOIST LOW-LEVEL WARM AIR ADVECTION SHOULD OVERRIDE THIS COOL
AIRMASS...SETTING THE STAGE FOR SIGNIFICANT ICING OVER NORTHEAST
OKLAHOMA BEGINNING LATE SATURDAY NIGHT INTO SUNDAY. IMPULSES OF
ENERGY EJECTING FROM THE SOUTHWESTERN U.S. UPPER SYSTEM COULD RESULT
IN SEVERAL ROUNDS OF WINTRY PRECIPITATION THROUGH THE EARLY PART OF
NEXT WEEK.

AT THIS TIME...AREAS ALONG AND NORTH OF INTERSTATE 44 APPEAR TO HAVE
THE BEST CHANCES FOR SIGNIFICANT ICING.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PLANNING STATEMENT...
THERE STILL REMAINS MUCH UNCERTAINTY AS TO THE TIMING AND PLACEMENT
OF WINTRY PRECIPITATION...SO INTERESTED PARTIES SHOULD CONTINUE TO
MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS AND DISCUSSIONS CONCERNING THIS
POTENTIAL WINTER WEATHER EVENT.
