Most of our area is now under an excessive heat warning. For most of the mid-state, this warning is in effect until midnight Friday. An excessive heat warning is issued in the Mid-South when the heat index is expected to top 110 degrees for several hours during the day. A heat advisory is issued when that index is expected to top 105 degrees for several hours.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop each of the next several days. Some of those storms could be strong to severe. The primary threat will be damaging wind gusts and locally heavy downpours. Today, some spots could also see hail. Here's the current severe weather outlook from the Storm Prediction Center for the next two days.
