427 AM CDT SUN JUL 26 2015

...HEAT AND HUMIDITY WILL CONTINUE THROUGH MID WEEK...

HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE LOWER 90S PAIRED WITH VERY HIGH HUMIDITY
WILL RESULT IN HEAT INDICES NEAR 105 THIS AFTERNOON ACROSS PORTIONS
OF SOUTHEAST MISSOURI. THE AREA OF GREATEST CONCERN IS SIMILAR TO
SATURDAY AFTERNOON...MAINLY ALONG AND WEST OF A LINE FROM GREENVILLE
TO NEW MADRID MISSOURI.

ONE POTENTIAL LIMITING FACTOR TODAY MAY BE MORE CLOUD COVER...NOT
ONLY FROM THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY NORTH OF THE AREA OVERNIGHT BUT
ALSO FROM NEW DEVELOPMENT LATER TODAY. THIS MAY ACT TO KEEP
TEMPERATURES AND HEAT INDEX READINGS A FEW DEGREES LOWER TODAY.
IT WILL BE HOT NONETHELESS...AND YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO EXERCISE
CAUTION IF YOU MUST BE OUTDOORS FOR ANY LENGTH OF TIME THIS
AFTERNOON.

THE HEAT AND HUMIDITY WILL ONLY BECOME MORE OPPRESSIVE MONDAY

SOUTHERN STATES. THE HEAT INDEX WILL LIKELY EXCEED 105 DEGREES
EACH AFTERNOON...WITH SOME LOCATIONS NEAR 110 OR HIGHER.

HEADLINES FOR THE HEAT WILL LIKELY BE REQUIRED. PLAN ON TAKING
