At 7:54 PM...National Weather Service Doppler radars
continued to detect a large area of light to moderate precipitation
moving across eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas. A wintry
mix was falling along and north of Highway 412...where
temperatures were near freezing. The back edge of the precipitation
was pushing into eastern Oklahoma...and extended from near
Bartlesville...south to McAlester. This line will continue to shift
toward the east...ending the precipitation from west to east.
Areas of drizzle and freezing drizzle...however...will remain
possible behind this line. Through 9:30 PM...widespread light
to moderate precipitation will persist across eastern
portions of the forecast area. A wintry mix will remain possible
across northern portions of the area...mainly along and north of
Highway 412. Little to no snow or sleet accumulation is
expected as surface and roadway temperatures are above freezing.
Hourly rainfall amounts will generally be a tenth of an inch or
less...with higher amounts up to a quarter of an inch with the
heavier precipitation bands or any thunderstorms that develop.
