Slick Streets and Highways for Green Country


Scattered thunderstorms will continue into the early morning hours across far southeast Oklahoma and west central Arkansas. A few strong to severe storms will be possible, with damaging wind gusts being the main threat. Storms are expected to exit the area by 8 to 9 am. Some additional light icing will also remain possible across parts of northeast Oklahoma and possibly into far northwest Arkansas. Heavier icing occurred overnight to the northwest of I-44, and gusty northwesterly winds could result in some spotty power outages and tree damage. Temperatures will drop into the teens by Friday morning with wind chill values in the single digits across a large portion of eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas. Unsettled weather will prevail through early next week with at least some potential for winter weather Saturday night and again Sunday night in parts of the area. At this time the potential for significant winter weather appears low.
