Central Arkansas and most of the state will be under a Heat Advisory Wednesday afternoon and early evening. That means Heat Index Values will climb over 105° thanks to the combination of hot temperatures and high humidity. The Fort Smith Metro may get heat index values over 110°, so an Excessive Heat Warning has been issued for those three counties.
If you can avoid working or playing outside in the afternoon hours, please do so. Plus, stay hydrated with water, and wear loose-fitting and light-colored clothing to help your body stay as cool as possible.
