925 PM CDT FRI JUL 21 2017

A hot and humid day was seen across the Natural State on
Friday...with only a few isolated thunderstorms popping up in the
heat of the day. Afternoon high temperatures were in the mid to
upper 90`s with heat index values ranging from 100 to 110 degrees.
After sunset the majority of the precipitation had come to an
end...with only a few lingering showers persisting.

High pressure will control the weather pattern across the state as
well as much of the central part of the country. 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.

Continued hot weather will be seen again on Saturday, with slightly
cooler conditions in the forecast late in the weekend and into early
next week. Better rain chances will return to the forecast on Sunday
and Monday ahead of an approaching weak cold front.
