Discussion...
a cool and dry airmass will be the main weather feature through
tomorrow. As this airmass shifts east tomorrow...moisture will
return on its western edge. This will bring rain and possibly a
rain/snow mix into northwest Oklahoma tomorrow afternoon...and
into most of Oklahoma/North Texas for the weekend.

With temperatures very near or above freezing...we do not expect
any significant snow accumulations...although light amounts on
grass/trees may occur in far northern Oklahoma on Sunday.

A cold front will arrive on Sunday...bringing another drop in
temperatures...and clearing conditions. Any remaining snow/rain
should end Sunday afternoon or early evening...generally from
northwest to southeast.

A second front is expected Tuesday night...that will interrupt a
brief warm-up...and may result in a few showers. If rain
occurs...it is most likely in eastern Oklahoma...but even there
the chances are low.
