Excessive Heat in the Ozarks This Week

Monday will mark the hottest day of the year so far in southwest Missouri, with a Heat Advisory in effect from noon on Monday through 8 pm on Tuesday.

The National Weather Service says heat index readings will range between 100-110 degrees Monday and 100 to 105 degrees on Tuesday.

We also have a chance for some isolated strong to marginally severe thunderstorms Tuesday night into Wednesday.

Heat can escalate quickly, and it’s one of the deadliest weather hazards.

Take the necessary precautions to stay safe from heat-related illness by drinking plenty of water, even if you don’t feel thirsty.

Also, spend time in air conditioning and in the shade, and wear loose-fitting and light-colored clothing.
