ANYONE WITH TRAVEL PLAINS DURING THIS TIME FRAME SHOULD CONTINUE

SOUTHERLY WINDS AND WARMER TEMPERATURES RETURN TO THE REGION
DURING THE SECOND HALF OF THE WEEK. GUSTY WINDS THURSDAY INTO

PARTS OF EASTERN OKLAHOMA AND NORTHWEST ARKANSAS. CHANCES FOR
PRECIPITATION LOOK TO BECOME POSSIBLE FRIDAY INTO THE WEEKEND AS
ANOTHER UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM AND COLD FRONT LOOKS TO
MOVE INTO THE PLAINS. DEPENDING ON SURFACE TEMPERATURES AND THE
