Fire Weather Planning Forecast for the MidSouth
National Weather Service Memphis TN
551 AM CDT Sun Jun 17 2018

.DISCUSSION...

Another very hot and humid day is expected across the Mid South as
temperatures rise into the lower to middle 90s. These hot
temperatures and humidity will produce heat index values between 100
to 106 degrees, especially over the Missouri Bootheel and Arkansas.
Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms may develop each
day, especially during the afternoon and early evening hours. Lows
will remain quite warm in the 70s overnight with highs each day in
the upper 80s to lower 90s for the remainder of the week.
