A strong storm system along with an invasion of arctic air
are forecast Wednesday into Thursday. This will support chances
for wintry weather that will likely create some travel impact across
the region. Continue to monitor the latest forecasts as the
details get refined.
In addition, the arctic cold combined with strong north winds will
yield dangerous wind chills beginning late Wednesday night continuing
through Thursday night. Wind chills from zero to 10 below zero are
possible across northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas during this time.


Emergency managers and first responders should begin preparing for
the potential of a winter storm next week. Travel is expected to
be impacted across the region, and the dangerous cold may
cause some issues as well. This cold spell, while quite intense,
is not expected to match the magnitude or duration of the
February 2021 event. Warmer temperatures are expected by the following
weekend. contains additional information.
