(TULSA, Okla.) A fast moving upper level disturbance will bring some flurries or light snow to parts of northeast Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas by late Friday morning into the afternoon. Any accumulation will be less than a half inch, and no significant travel problems are expected at this time as temperatures will be near or even above freezing this afternoon. Downstream air mass remained rather dry going into Friday which will largely limit precipitation potential with the passing wave, however at least a low chance of measurable amounts does appear possible. Temperatures will quickly modify Saturday with continued above normal temps Sunday ahead of the next strong cold front. Low precipitation chances across western Arkansas are warranted with the associated passing wave, otherwise gusty winds and a return to below normal temps is expected. Temperatures are expected to again modify rather quickly by mid-week beneath the largely dry northwesterly flow aloft. The next cold front is currently forecast in the Thursday/Friday time frame.
