Another storm system is expected to reach Arkansas late Wednesday, with the potential for producing showers, 60 mile-per-hour winds, and hail that may measure up to an inch in diameter.

Isolated thunderstorms have been forecast for the Little Rock area, but the highest concentration of activity is expected to be in the western part of the state.

National Weather Service Meteorologist Willie Gilmore says the weather is typical of early spring, but damaging activity is possible.

"There will be a couple strong to severe storms and maybe some hail," he says. "I can’t completely rule out an isolated tornado, especially across the western section of the state."

Gilmore says this storm will not be as severe as thunderstorms that passed through Arkansas a week and a half ago.
