High-resolution short-term models are certainly bullish today on a swath of heavy freezing rain across portions of South and East Oklahoma into Arkansas tomorrow night into Monday morning.

A winter storm watch has been issued for this region, with ice totals of half an inch and locally more possible. The big danger will be ice accumulating on elevated surfaces like bridges, trees, and powerlines. Power outages are common with these types of storms, and sneakily hazardous roads with slick bridges are as well.

We’re definitely going to go live tomorrow night to talk about this system in a bit more detail. But we just wanted to get a quick note out that confidence is a little higher today than yesterday on more impactful ice totals for some in the region.
