NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Stormy weather is in the forecast for parts of the Southern Plains on Friday.

The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma, says the area at greatest risk for thunderstorms and hail includes central and southern Oklahoma, northern Texas and southwest Arkansas.

A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect for much of Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma until mid-morning Friday. Forecasters say strong thunderstorms are expected with the possibility of large hail, and tornadoes can’t be ruled out.
