Extreme heat on the Gulf Coast
Sweltering heat has invaded Mississippi and the entire southeastern United States.
The combination of humidity and temperatures in the upper 90s will make it feel like it is well above 100 degrees out. Forecasters say it is possible the heat index will likely reach 110 degrees in some places.
Anyone with outdoor plans is urged to exercise extreme caution when dealing with the high temperatures. Remember to wear lightweight and loose-fitting clothing and drink plenty of water to combat the extreme heat.
