LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The National Weather Service is forecasting temperatures as high as 110 degrees and a high danger of wildfire in Arkansas.

Forecasters say humidity is expected to drop below 30 percent Monday across the state, making it easier for fires to start.

Also, forecasters say a cool front is approaching from the north and southwest winds ahead of the front will help fires spread more easily. Some thunderstorms are possible.

A heat advisory is in effect for all of Arkansas. The hottest temperatures are expected west of a line from Camden to Stuttgart.

Burn bans are in place for 60 of Arkansas’ 75 counties.
