front as the freezing line sinks south into northeast Oklahoma
after midnight tonight. By late tonight, the freezing line is
forecast to stretch from Pawnee to Ramona to Nowata. Light icing

The front will combine with increasing moisture and an upper disturbance to produce light freezing rain or drizzle Wednesday into Thursday morning across a good portion of east central and northeast Oklahoma, as well as far northwest Arkansas. Light icing on elevated surfaces such as bridges and overpasses will create some travel impacts. A significant arctic intrusion is forecast this weekend. A wintry mix is possible across southeast Oklahoma while snow is expected across the remainder of the region Saturday night into Sunday. Some light accumulations are expected, which could again cause some travel issues. Wind chills by Sunday morning are expected to drop below zero north of I-44 behind the strong front.
