The National Weather Service Issues A Heat Advisory For Most Of Arkansas

A heat advisory is in affect for Central and Southwest Arkansas for Tuesday and Wednesday. Temperatures are expected to reach the upper 90s and in some areas even 100 degrees, but will feel warmer due to humidity levels.

Senior Forecaster John Lewis says certain groups of people are more likely to be affected negatively by the heat.

"Small children, the elderly, people in general who work outside for long periods of time, should at least consider moving indoors...so the heat isn't as prolonged" said Lewis. 

The National Weather Service warning begins Tuesday at noon and will last until Wednesday evening.
