A widespread freeze is expected across all of eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas tonight and early Wednesday morning in the wake of a strong cold front. Parts of northwest Arkansas may see a killing freeze with temperatures dropping as low as 24 degrees, while lows in the 27 to 32 range will be common elsewhere. Any tender vegetation should be protected or brought indoors.
A strong cold front will continue to move through the area this morning with gusty north winds and sharply colder temperatures. Precipitation will spread into northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas later this morning, with potential for rain mixing with or briefly changing to snow as the heavier band of precipitation moves through. Surface temperatures are expected to remain above freezing throughout the day and as such, any snow accumulation will be a few tenths of an inch confined to grassy surfaces and melt off quickly as soon as the snow ends.
.Today...Breezy. Periods of light snow and chance of light rain. Highs 40 to 71.
.Tonight...Breezy, clear. Widespread frost. Lows 24 to 39.
.Wed...Mostly sunny. Widespread frost. Highs 53 to 65.
A band of wintry precipitation is continuing to push eastward this afternoon. Some observations across NW AR are showing visibility dropping below 1 mile at times within the heaviest bands of snow. Be sure to use caution if you happen to drive into one of these bands. Light accumulations are also being reported across far NW AR on grassy surfaces.
