Wintry precipitation is expected to develop Thursday morning and overspread eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas during the daytime hours. After a several hour break in the accumulating precipitation, a second batch will affect the region late Thursday night and into Friday.

Locations along and northwest of the Interstate 44 corridor will likely see snow and sleet...with far southeast Oklahoma and west central Arkansas seeing mostly freezing rain...with perhaps a transition to some sleet by Friday afternoon.  Locations in east central Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas will see all precipitation types, transitioning from a prolonged period of freezing rain and sleet to eventually snow.

4 inches or more of snow and sleet accumulation and less than a quarter inch of ice accumulation is expected from Thursday morning through Friday afternoon.

Roads, bridges, and overpasses may become slick and hazardous in the watch aream, making travel treacherous. Power outages are possible.

Consider changing travel plans. Make sure you have an adequate supply of food...water and the necessary medication to last through the duration of the winter storm.
