Heat will become the main issue moving forward this week. Look for widespread highs in the 90s and afternoon heat index values likely exceeding the century park for the majority of the state . Stay safe out there.
On this day in 1954, the state was in the midst of a brutal heatwave. Little rain and hot temperatures set the stage for numerous wildfires across the state with dwindling water supplies to help fight them.
Maximum heat value indices will top out over 100 degrees over a good part of the state today. A heat advisory continues for most of central and southern Arkansas.
Ever wonder how the heat index is calculated? The actual equation to get the heat index is pretty complicated so go ahead and use this chart to see what it really feels like outside!
