As a result, a heat index has been issued for areas along and west of Highway 75.
A Heat Advisory is issued by the National Weather Service when the "heat index" is expected to exceed 105 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and 80 degrees Fahrenheit during the night for at least two consecutive days.
A cool front will arrive on Sunday, which will bring with it a chance for a few isolated storms. Much cooler weather is anticipated for much of next week.
