This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for a Large Part of Arkansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

It will be very hot this afternoon, with heat index values ranging
from 100 to 110 degrees across much of Arkansas. Heat indices may be
higher in a few locations. Any thunderstorms will be isolated.

Late this afternoon and especially tonight, more widespread showers
and thunderstorms will try to build into northern sections of the
state from Missouri. Some of the precipitation may make it into
areas north of Little Rock. A storm or two could be severe, with
strong to damaging winds the main concern.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday Through Tuesday

It will not be so hot in the coming days. Thunderstorm chances will
increase Thursday into the weekend as a weak cold front slides into
the state from the north and stalls. Any severe weather will be
spotty. One to more than two inches of rain could occur across
portions of northern Arkansas, and this could cause localized flash
flooding.

.Spotter Information Statement...

Any severe weather will be spotty in the foreseeable future, so
spotter activation will not be needed.

...HEAT ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM NOON TODAY TO 9 PM CDT
THIS EVENING...

* EVENT...Hot and humid conditions will continue today.

* AREAS AFFECTED...Much of Arkansas except parts of the Ozark
  Mountains of the north.

* TEMPERATURE...Highs will be in the 90s, with peak heat index
  values from 100 to 110 degrees. Localized higher heat indices
  are possible.

* IMPACTS...Hot weather will increase the risk of heat related
  illness, including heat exhaustion and heat stroke. The very
  young, the elderly, and those without access to air
  conditioning will be especially vulnerable.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. If
possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or
evening. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing and drink
plenty of water.

If you must be outdoors, the occupational safety and health
administration recommends taking frequent rest breaks in shaded
or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat should
be moved to a cool and shaded location. If heat stroke is
suspected, call 9 1 1.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in
vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during
warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal
temperatures in a matter of minutes.
