FIRST ALERT: Heat advisory issued for much of the Mid-South

Heat Advisory until 8PM Wednesday Heat Advisory until 8PM Wednesday
MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Triple digit heat index values will once again be in place Wednesday prompting the National Weather Service to continue the HEAT ADVISORY for much of eastern Arkansas, West Tennessee, and northwestern Mississippi until 8 p.m. Wednesday.  

Heat indices will range from 105-109 during the afternoon hours.  A slight chance for a few pop-up afternoon showers or storms are possible but most areas will be hot and dry through the day.  

Somewhat drier air will move in from the west Thursday bringing slight relief from the humidity and the heat index but high temperatures are still expected to reach the mid and upper 90s.  A front will bring a better chance of more widespread rain and thunderstorms and leave behind a significant break from the heat as high temperatures only reach the mid to upper 80s for the weekend and the beginning of next week.
