Afternoon temperatures will be near or again exceed the century

heat is combined with the abundant moisture in the air... the
resultant heat index values will range from 105 to 110 degrees.
The heat advisory has been extended once again for the four state region until until 7 PM CDT Monday August 16.
Since July 14 the temps have been 100° and heat indices 105 - 115° — for over 30 days now
