Heat Advisory for most of Region 8 Sunday afternoon

Jonesboro, AR (KAIT) - Dangerous heat indices are expected in Region 8 Sunday afternoon.  The National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory from 1:00 PM until 8:00 PM Sunday for much of Region 8.  The heat index is expected to be at or near 105 degrees.

Heat is the number one weather killer according to the N.W.S.  Young children, the elderly, and those with illnesses or heart conditions are the most at risk.  If you are outside during this time, drink plenty of water, take breaks, and stay out of the sun.  It's also a good idea to check up on relatives, neighbors, and pets for signs of heat related illnesses.

There is a 50% chance of rain and thunderstorms across Region 8 Sunday afternoon.  There will be some isolated cooling around the storms.  You can track the storms on the Interactive Radar at www.kait8.com or on your cell phone at www.region8togo.com.
