LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Weather forecasters say there is a chance of strong tornadoes in Arkansas and Missouri.

The Storm Prediction Center advised Thursday there was moderate risk of severe weather in the region. In a mid-afternoon forecast, the meteorologists said there was still a chance that clusters of supercell thunderstorms could form in an area from Springfield, Mo., to Little Rock and eastward to near Poplar Bluff, Mo., and Memphis, Tenn.

Some of the storms could be significant.

The forecasters said varying computer models show different storm development patterns through the evening. If storms develop just along a cold front, a line of storms might not be as severe as several individual storms.

Storms Thursday morning dropped one-inch hail and falling tree limbs knocked out power in western Arkansas.
