Temperature to Dip Below 100 for Much of Arkansas by Thursday

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The National Weather Service says a little cloud cover and moisture will help temperatures in parts of Arkansas stay below 100 degrees by tomorrow.

Weather service forecaster Joe Goudsward says temperatures have been running higher than average over the last few days.  He says the slight dip that's to come won't matter for folks working in the sun all day.

The heat is to continue into next week, though temperatures may not be quite as extreme.

The hot and dry conditions have brought a wildfire danger to the state.

Burn bans are in place in 36 Arkansas counties.
