NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Weather forecasters say there’s a chance of severe weather in parts of Oklahoma and Arkansas during the upcoming work week.

The National Weather Service says there is a slight risk of severe thunderstorms in far western Oklahoma Sunday afternoon and evening. Hail the size of tennis balls and wind gusts of near 70 mph are possible with the storms. But forecasters say the potential for tornadoes is very low.

The storms will move eastward overnight and cover much of central and eastern Oklahoma as well as western Arkansas on Monday and Tuesday. Thunderstorms will remain in the forecast through Saturday, and forecasters say some storms may be severe, especially on Thursday and Friday.

The region will experience daily thunderstorm chances as warmer temperatures and increasing moisture spread across the area.
