LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Forecasters have issued an excessive heat warning for much of Arkansas as the hot summer temperatures stay put in the state.

The heat warning is in effect until 7 p.m. Thursday, and a heat advisory runs until 9 p.m. Friday. The National Weather Service says some areas could see heat index values of 110 degrees or higher.

The warning covers much of central, southern and eastern Arkansas, including Conway, El Dorado, Hot Springs, Little Rock and Searcy. The weather service says people should exercise extreme caution if working outside, or consider postponing the work because of the high heat and humidity levels.

The hot temperatures are more of the same for Arkansas. Forecasters say the temperature has been 90 degrees or hotter for the past 50 consecutive days.
