.DISCUSSION...
Main concern for today is whether heat index values will remain
between 105 and 110 degrees for the majority of the afternoon as
convection develops across Northeast Louisiana and Southeast
Arkansas or if delayed convection will allow heat index values to
approach excessive heat warning criteria above 110 degrees. At
this time current forecast remains on track which would allow for
isolated instances of heat index values approaching 110 degrees
before the onset of convection during the early to mid-afternoon
hours. Therefore, will hold off on an excessive heat warning at
this time and will update as the situation warrants. /05/
