DANGEROUS HEAT.

DISCUSSION...
An excessive heat warning is in effect for west central Arkansas

across the rest of the advisory area, expect heat index values
between 105 and 110 degrees.

Isolated thunderstorms will develop across eastern Oklahoma and
northwest Arkansas this afternoon. Any storms will bring some
brief relief from the heat, but they will also bring lightning,
heavy downpours and gusty winds. There is the potential for
isolated damaging winds with the strongest storms. Be prepared to
take shelter inside if a storm approaches your area.

Additional thunderstorms will likely move into the area from the
north overnight. These storms will pose a limited severe weather
threat, especially near the Kansas state line.

numerous showers and thunderstorms into the weekend. Clouds and
scattered storms will keep temperatures much cooler, with highs
only in the 80s on Friday and Saturday.
