LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Just as one storm system moves out of the Natural State, another severe weather threat is moving into Arkansas.
Our meteorologists say isolated strong to severe thunderstorms are possible across mainly parts of central to eastern Arkansas Monday.
A majority of the state is under a marginal to slight risk of severe storms, with damaging winds the primary threat, large hail and an isolated tornadoes will be much lower threats. This system will push east later Monday, taking any threat out of Arkansas.

Large hail, damaging winds, and isolated tornadoes all appear to be possible.
