The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory effective through Sunday for Southeast Missouri and Southern Illinois. It was issued as a result of afternoon temperatures climbing to the mid to upper 90s, combined with oppressive humidity, which will produce afternoon heat index readings of 100 to 105 degrees over 5 consecutive days.


Meteorologist Robin Smith of the National Weather Service in Paducah says it’s not abnormal to have heat advisories this time of year.
