425 PM CDT THU JUL 20 2017

It was a rather warm and muggy morning across the Natural State.
Lows this morning were only in the 70s. Some patchy fog was seen,
but quickly dissipated after sunrise. A strong ridge of high
pressure settled into the region, bringing some of the hottest
weather to Arkansas so far this summer.

Temperatures this afternoon have risen into the mid and upper 90s
around of the state. Very humid conditions are also in place across
most of Arkansas. As a result, heat index values ranged from 100 to
113. Due to the high heat indices, a heat advisory has been issued
until Friday evening for all of Arkansas. A few afternoon showers
have developed and provided relief, but these showers were few and
far between. Friday will be similar to today weather wise with
temperatures nearly the same or a couple degrees warmer.

Please take extra precautions to minimize the affects of the high
heat in the afternoon to early evening. When possible, reschedule
strenuous activities to early morning or evening, and know the signs
and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light weight
and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water.

The chances for rain will remain low for the next couple of days,
but slightly cooler conditions are forecast late in the weekend into
early next week as the upper level high pressure ridge weakens.
Moving towards the end of the weekend into Monday rain chances will
return the state.
