The data continues to show a strong ridge of high pressure building into the south central United States next week. This will bring our first "mini" heat wave into the state.

I always talk about the 3 key ingredients for triple digit heat in Arkansas.
- Strong ridge of high pressure
- Abundant sunshine
- Dry ground
The video below shows you some of the data and the possibilities next week.
