Heat Advisory and Code Orange extended
The Heat Advisory for the entire metro area, all of west TN, north MS, and eastern AR, and the Code Orange Air Quality Alert for the Memphis area, will be in effect through Tuesday evening. Today's highs as of 3:45pm include 99 at Memphis Int'l, 97 at Jackson, 100 in Jonesboro and Tupelo, and 99 in West Memphis. The MWN weather station in Bartlett recorded 101.7 for a high! Heat indices have been hovering between 104-110 all day. This hot weather will continue tomorrow, maybe with a degree or two of cooling due to a few more clouds and isolated t'storms. Fortunately, a front will work it's way into the area Tuesday night and Wednesday, providing some relief from the heat, and hopefully a little rain!
