NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - The Storm Prediction Center says a slight risk of severe weather is possible across the Ozarks and into the middle Mississippi River Valley.

Thursday’s stronger storms will form across Missouri and north Arkansas, plus parts of Illinois, Kansas and Oklahoma.

Clearing skies in central and eastern Kansas are letting the atmosphere become unstable. Hail and damaging winds are the main hazards initially.

Forecasters say the scenario for eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas is less certain, but that there is sufficient wind shear to perhaps support supercells capable of producing large hail and a few tornadoes.

Friday, there is a slight risk of storms from Arkansas and western Tennessee southward to the Gulf Coast, including eastern Texas. Hail is the main threat but high winds and isolated tornadoes are possible too.
