LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A heat advisory has been issued for much of central and southern Arkansas.

The National Weather Service in Little Rock issued the advisory for Wednesday as heat index values could reach as high as 110 degrees.

Forecasters say the combination of highs in the mid-90s and high humidity values will make heat stress more likely for anyone who is outdoors, doing physical activity or people living in places without cooling.

The weather service advises those in the affected parts of the state to drink plenty of fluids, stay in air-conditioned rooms and check on relatives and neighbors.
