Rain will likely continue through the day Saturday across southeast Oklahoma and the Arkansas river valley as an upper disturbance approaches from the west. A light wintry mix remains possible Saturday into Saturday night with 1 to 3 inches of snow accumulation possible across northwest Arkansas, mainly in the higher terrain areas. Lighter snow amounts, below one inch, will be possible across northeast Oklahoma. In addition, a light glaze of ice will also be possible in northwest Arkansas. Precipitation chances will diminish early Sunday morning as the upper system shifts east.
