The National Weather Service says thunderstorms in the state Sunday might carry the threat of severe weather.

John Robinson, warning coordination meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Little Rock, said Sunday's storms will move eastward during the afternoon.

"Greater chances of severe weather will exist with storms redeveloping at mid to late afternoon Sunday in the western part of the state," Robinson said in a statement. "These storms will move to the east during the evening, exiting eastern Arkansas a few hours after midnight."

Large hail, damaging winds and some tornadoes are expected with this line of storms.

"There could be at least a couple of tornadoes of EF2 or greater intensity," Robinson said. "This looks to be our biggest severe weather threat so far this year."

In addition to Sunday's severe weather threat, forecasters say storms are likely to redevelop in the state on Monday afternoon. Large hail, damaging winds and a few tornadoes are possible.

These storms should exit Arkansas early Monday evening, Robinson said.
