At 5:51 PM...National Weather Service Doppler radars
continued to detect widespread light to moderate precipitation
occurring across eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas. Most of the
precipitation was falling as rain...however a mix of
rain...sleet...and snow was occurring across portions of northeast
Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas...mainly along and north of
Highway 412. Isolated thunderstorms were also affecting southeast
Oklahoma. All this activity was moving toward the
northeast...around 40 miles per hour. Through 8:00 PM...widespread light to
moderate precipitation will persist across the forecast area.
A wintry mix will remain likely across northern portions of
the area...with isolated thunderstorms possible in the south.
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.
