Episode Narrative A prolonged heat wave occurred during the middle to latter part of June across the Mid-South as a strong upper ridge of high pressure moved over the region. Temperatures rose into the mid to upper 90s during the afternoon hours. The combination of highs in the mid to upper 90s and high humidity produced heat indices between 100 and 110 degrees. Overnight lows in the 70s to around 80 degrees provided little relief. Six heat-related deaths occurred as a result.
Event Narrative Heat index readings ranged from 100 to 110 degrees.
