Well, Little Rock, you did it!  On Saturday, the afternoon high temperature was officially 100 degrees.  Not only was it the first time this year, but it was the first 100-degree reading since August 5, 2016---almost two years ago.  Record keeping in Little Rock began in 1879 with current weather averages based on data observed at Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport (sometimes known as Adams Field).  The average first 100-degree day is July 19th.  The average last 100-degree day is August 15th.  During a "normal" summer, Little Rock will observe seven days of 100-degree heat. https://twitter.com/NWSLittleRock/status/1018285708505690113 Looking ahead, temperatures may flirt with the century mark early in the week.  Afternoon highs, however, will likely top out in the mid-to-upper 90s. Other area cities will remain under a Heat Advisory on Sunday due to continued above average temperatures and high humidity levels.  Cities such as Fort Smith and Tulsa can expect similarly hot conditions. Check out WeatherNation's main page and enter your zip code to see if your local forecast will be hot and humid.  Chances are it will.  It's summer after all! - Meteorologist Joe Astolfi
