Special Statement
Statement as of 4:46 AM CST on March 03, 2015

... More winter weather expected for late Tuesday night through
Wednesday...

After a rather mild Tuesday... much colder air will overspread the
region as a strong cold front pushes through eastern Oklahoma and
northwest Arkansas tonight. Light rain this evening is expected to
transition to freezing rain and sleet after midnight across
northeast Oklahoma and into northwest Arkansas... and eventually to
mostly snow and sleet by Wednesday. This transition will occur
later across southeast Oklahoma and west central Arkansas... mainly
from Wednesday morning into the evening.

The current snowfall forecast is calling for the highest amounts
across northwest Arkansas... where around 2 to 4 inches will be
possible. Locally higher amounts are likely... especially in the
higher terrain areas. Significant amounts of freezing rain may
occur as well... especially in the Arkansas River valley of west
central Arkansas. This area remains under a Winter Storm
Watch... which may be upgraded to a warning later today.

Northeast Oklahoma will likely see some light icing Tuesday
night... and around 1 to 3 inches of snow and sleet by Wednesday.
Southeast Oklahoma could see around a tenth or two of icing on
Wednesday... with an additional inch or two of snow by late
Wednesday into Wednesday evening.

Continue to monitor the latest forecasts for this winter weather
event. Winter weather advisories or warnings may be needed as the
developing situation becomes a bit more clear.
