LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued for eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas.

The National Weather Service said Sunday that scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are expected to increase in size and intensity as a low pressure area moves eastward near Oklahoma’s border with Kansas.

Forecasters say hail of around 2 inches in diameter will be possible with the strongest storms. In addition, there is a limited risk of tornadoes stretching from southeastern Oklahoma to northwestern Arkansas.

Locally heavy rain will also be possible across far eastern Oklahoma and northwestern Arkansas, which could produce isolated flash flooding. Gusty northerly winds will spread across the region as the cold front moves eastward Sunday afternoon and evening.

A brief period of dry weather is expected Monday before more severe storms are possible.
