TULSA, Oklahoma -- The chance of winter weather on Sunday has been reduced - but not eliminated, according to News On 6 meteorologist Dick Faurot.

"We are only expecting a slight chance of precipitation during the day. The problem is that some of the precipitation could be in the form of freezing drizzle first thing Sunday morning before switching over to a few snow flurries during the day," he said.

"Any accumulation would be confined to the extreme northeast counties or northwest Arkansas, and not much more than a dusting there, the way things stand at this time."

The systems that are moving across the state during the coming week are called NW flow events which "lead to some real forecast headaches," Faurot said.

"There is always the potential that one of them will amplify much more strongly and much more quickly than expected, but picking out which one will do that is no easy task. Thus, the expression: NW flow, weatherman's woe," he said.

It will be colder Sunday than on Saturday, Faurot said, with temperatures struggling to get above freezing.
