Weekend Heat Advisory

Hot Weather

It’s Friday the 13th…in July, and Arkansauna is in full effect.

Heat advisories are posted for most of the state as the heat indices will climb to 105 – 110 today. The advisory runs until 8:00pm this evening when the heat index value will drop below 105.

Due to the heat and drought conditions, nearly two-thirds of the state remains with an increased wildfire danger.

The Arkansas Forestry Commission lists 44 of the state’s 75 counties as having a moderate wildfire risk. Among them are Cleburne, Conway, Faulkner, Jackson, Lonoke, Perry, Prairie, Pulaski, Van Buren, White and Woodruff.

Carroll, Garland and Saline Counties have burn bans in effect with more possibly to be issued over the weekend.
