LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Scorching temperatures are in the forecast this week for most of Arkansas, as well as an increased risk for wildfires.

The National Weather Service in Little Rock says heat index values could reach as high as 105 degrees (40 degrees Celsius) in some parts of the state Thursday. Meanwhile, the hot and dry weather is increasing the risk of wildfire danger in central Arkansas, including Pulaski County.

The hot, humid conditions are expected to affect all areas in Arkansas except higher elevations in the Ozark Mountains.

The hot weather is expected to stick around through the weekend and early next week.
