We haven't had a June this hot since 1963. The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory from Wednesday afternoon through Thursday night for areas north and west of Springfield.
Meteorologist Mike Griffin says that means air temps will be around 100, then the humidity will bump the heat index so it feels more like 105 to 108 in some places.
Griffin says it's still going to feel pretty miserable for people not affected by the heat advisory. He suggests people pay extra close attention to the warning signs of heat exhaustion.
Health experts recommend staying hydrated, staying indoors, and staying cool. There are a number of agencies like the Salvation Army and the American Red Cross that have set up cooling centers at their headquarters in Springfield. The state has put together an online resource to find other cooling centers spread across Missouri. Click here to use it.
