NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Potentially severe storms packing damaging winds, large hail and possibly tornadoes are in the forecast for parts of Oklahoma and Arkansas heading into the weekend.

The National Weather Service says thunderstorms will develop Friday and move east across Oklahoma, causing storms that could produce damaging winds and heavy rainfall.

Forecasters say the line of strong to severe storms will reach Arkansas by late Friday afternoon and evening and sweep across the state.

The weather service says some storms that develop in Arkansas could pack damaging winds, large hail and possibly a few tornadoes.

Storm chances will decrease Saturday before picking up again in parts of Oklahoma by Sunday.
