Though a few thunderstorms will make their way through the state Monday and Monday night, the threat for severe weather will be low, John Robinson, warning coordination meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said Sunday.
"If there were isolated severe storms, they would probably be in northern Arkansas late Monday night and during the wee hours of Tuesday morning," Robinson said. Large hail would be the main severe weather threat.
Wednesday afternoon and evening, some severe storms could occur with large hail and damaging winds. The main weather system should affect the state Thursday afternoon and night, Robinson said, when the highest chances for severe weather are likely to occur.
Large hail, damaging winds and a few tornadoes will be possible.
"We have had no confirmed tornadoes in Arkansas yet this year and it appears Thursday stands a good chance of putting an end to the tornado-free streak," Robinson said in a statement.
The forecast could still change at this point, Robinson said.
