This extreme heat combined with very high humidity values will take the heat index into dangerously high territory. Heat index values on Wednesday will be as high as 105° across central middle Tennessee, and as high as 110° across West Tennessee.

As a result, the National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for much of middle Tennessee and an Excessive Heat Warning for areas in West Tennessee for most of the day Wednesday.

Another round of heat advisories and excessive heat warnings will likely be needed this weekend as more big-time heat and humidity surge back in.
