...HEAT ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 PM CDT SUNDAY...

* TEMPERATURE...RAIN THIS MORNING HAS SLOWED THE RATE IN WHICH
TEMPERATURES CLIMB TODAY...BUT READINGS WILL CONTINUE TO CLIMB
DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON DRIVING UP THE HEAT INDEX.

THUNDERSTORMS ARE ONCE AGAIN EXPECTED TO DEVELOP OVER THE
PLAINS TONIGHT...AND THE REMNANT CLOUD COVER WILL PLAY A ROLE
IN TEMPERATURES ACROSS THE OZARKS ON SUNDAY. LOOK FOR THE
MERCURY TO AGAIN CLIMB INTO THE 90S WITH HEAT INDICES TOPPING

* IMPACTS...PROLONGED EXPOSURE TO EXCESSIVE HEAT CAN CAUSE HEAT
EXHAUSTION OR HEAT STROKE. REDUCED VISIBILITIES THIS MORNING

FOLLOWING DISTANCE AND USE CAUTION.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

TAKE EXTRA PRECAUTIONS...IF YOU WORK OR SPEND TIME OUTSIDE. WHEN
POSSIBLE...RESCHEDULE STRENUOUS ACTIVITIES TO EARLY MORNING OR

STROKE. WEAR LIGHT WEIGHT AND LOOSE FITTING CLOTHING WHEN
POSSIBLE AND DRINK PLENTY OF WATER.

HEALTH ADMINISTRATION RECOMMENDS SCHEDULING FREQUENT REST BREAKS
IN SHADED OR AIR CONDITIONED ENVIRONMENTS. ANYONE OVERCOME BY
HEAT SHOULD BE MOVED TO A COOL AND SHADED LOCATION. HEAT STROKE

A HEAT ADVISORY MEANS THAT A PERIOD OF HOT TEMPERATURES IS
