NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - More tornadoes could be heading to Oklahoma and Arkansas.

Meteorologist Doug Speheger with the National Weather Service in Norman, Oklahoma, said storms will move from Texas into Oklahoma Friday night and Saturday morning, followed by another round that could produce tornadoes Saturday afternoon. But Speheger said the morning storms could cool the atmosphere enough to avoid severe storms, or lingering cloud cover could prevent afternoon heating and also inhibit the storms.

The weather service says tornadoes are possible in western Oklahoma and - as storms move eastward - in eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas late Saturday and on Sunday.

Heavy rainfall and flooding is also possible.

Tornadoes and flooding on May 6 in Oklahoma led to two drowning deaths and two people died in Nashville, Arkansas, when a tornado struck last Sunday.
