LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The National Weather Service has placed a large part of Arkansas under a tornado watch and forecasters say severe storms could develop this evening.

Central and southern Arkansas had the greatest risk for severe weather late Saturday.

The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma, said earlier that multiple rounds of severe storms were possible Saturday afternoon into early Sunday from Louisiana and Arkansas eastward to north Florida, Georgia and South Carolina.

The prediction center says a swath of southeast Arkansas has an enhanced risk of seeing severe weather, including the city of Little Rock. Severe weather could include hail, high winds and tornadoes.

Forecasters said there was a slight risk for severe thunderstorms Saturday from extreme northeast Texas and southeast Oklahoma eastward to parts of the southeast Atlantic coast.
