Weather Blog: Drizzle Ending, Arctic Air for the Weekend


Light icing from freezing drizzle is expected to taper off from west to east across eastern Oklahoma and northwest Arkansas on Thursday morning.

Roads could potentially be slick for the morning commute. 

Temperatures should rise above freezing in most areas by midday ending the threat.

A significant arctic intrusion is forecasted this weekend. An upper system will bring the potential for a wintry mix and snow to the region in the wake of the arctic front Saturday night and Sunday.

Some light snow and sleet accumulations, as well as light icing accumulations, are forecast, which could cause some travel issues.

Wind chills Sunday night into Monday are expected to drop below zero north of Interstate 40 behind the strong front.
