Heat Advisory for the Ozarks Through Thursday

The high heat and humidity have returned to southwest Missouri for much of this week.

The National Weather Service says all of the Ozarks is under a heat advisory through Thursday evening.

Forecasters say afternoon heat indices of around 105 will be common each day through at least Thursday.

Prolonged exposure to the heat and humidity can cause heat exhaustion or heat stroke.

Take proper precautions to protect yourself from heat exhaustion, heat stroke, or dehydration, including drinking plenty of water and limiting the amount of time you spend outdoors in the hottest part of the day.
