LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Forecasters say severe weather is possible in Arkansas during the Memorial Day weekend.

The National Weather Service says isolated severe thunderstorms will be possible Saturday afternoon and evening across the northern half of the state. Forecasters say the storms could produce large hail and damaging winds as well as a possible tornado.

The chance for strong thunderstorms will increase as a cold front drops south toward the state. Those storms could also become severe, with damaging winds possible with the strongest storms.

Large hail and a few brief tornadoes will also be possible as this line or complex moves south across northern Arkansas. Some locally heavy rain may also be seen, resulting in an isolated flash flood threat.

On Sunday, forecasters say scattered severe thunderstorms are possible in the state.
