This National Weather Service forecast graphic shows the potential for severe storms Tuesday afternoon and evening in the northern half of Arkansas.

Severe thunderstorms are possible over the northern half of Arkansas on Tuesday afternoon through evening, the National Weather Service said.

John Robinson, warning coordination meteorologist for the weather service in North Little Rock, said "at least a few severe thunderstorms" are likely to occur in the state's northern half.

"Damaging winds should have a greater chance of occurring than large hail," he said in an email. "The tornado threat is relatively low, but not zero."

The storms may continue into early Wednesday morning but they are not expected to be severe at that time.

Another round of potential severe weather comes Wednesday, with isolated storms possible in the southern half of Arkansas.
