A cold front entering northeast Oklahoma will continue south across the area Tuesday. As a result, temperatures Tuesday will be several degrees cooler than those observed Monday, but still well above normal for January. Temperatures will fall back closer to normal Wednesday and Thursday as the cooler airmass continues to settle south into the area. The next storm system will affect the area Thursday night into early Saturday resulting in widespread rain. Rain chances become possible Thursday night, increase Friday and Friday night and look to taper off Saturday in response to an low pressure system approaching from the northwest and also a low pressure system approaching across Texas. Widespread rainfall could allow for some locally heavy rainfall Friday and Friday night. Also, Friday night into Saturday morning, colder air associated with the northern low pressure system could allow for a limited potential of wintry weather across parts of Northeast Oklahoma and Northwest Arkansas. At this time wintry weather impacts look to be minimal. However, continue to stay up to date with latest forecasts as details are refined over the coming days. Cloud cover may persist much of the weekend, but sunshine will return by early next week, allowing temperatures to warm back to above normal levels at that time.
