...HEAT INDEX VALUES BETWEEN 105 AND 109 DEGREES ARE EXPECTED THIS
AFTERNOON ACROSS SOUTH TEXAS...
The combination of warm temperatures and high dewpoints will
produce heat indices between 105 and 109 degrees this afternoon.
Heat index values around 110 degrees may occur briefly over some
locations across the southern Coastal Bend.
Residents with outdoor activities planned are urged to drink
plenty of water, wear light weight and light colored clothing and
take frequent breaks from the heat. Young children and pets should
never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances.
This is especially true during warm or hot weather when car
interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.
