NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - The National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch for much of central and eastern Oklahoma.

Forecasters say thunderstorms, including a few supercells, are expected to form Sunday and spread eastward with a cold front that was over west central Oklahoma Sunday afternoon. The storms will create risks of severe wind, hail and possible tornadoes.

The primary threats are scattered large hail of up to 1.5 inches in diameter, damaging wind gusts of up to 70 mph and the possibility of tornadoes.

The tornado watch extends until 9 p.m. and stretches from north-northwest of Bartlesville in northern Oklahoma to south of Ardmore in the southern part of the state.

A tornado watch means conditions are favorable for the formation of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes in and along the watch area.
