LITTLE ROCK, AR (AP) - Arkansans should watch the skies for thunder and possibly hail or tornados Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service. "We could certainly see severe storms in the night hours," said Brian Smith, a senior forecaster with the weather service.
The weather service projected a 5 percent chance of tornadoes and a 15 percent chance of hail across the northern portion of the state.
Tuesday's bad weather should be cleared up early Wednesday morning, but it could return two days later when another storm is predicted to roll in.
The possibility for severe storms comes almost 15 years to the day after 16 tornados ripped through Clark County in southwestern Arkansas to Greene County in the northeastern portion of the state.
Twenty-five people were killed and at least 1,200 structures were damaged at an estimated cost of $115 million, according to the weather service.
