...Elevated heat index values expected each afternoon today
through much of the week...

Afternoon heat index values, or the feels like temperature, will
peak during the afternoons in the the 104 to 108 degree range for
portions of South Central Texas today through much of the week.
The heat index in some isolated spots east of I-35 could reach up
to 110 degrees. These elevated heat index values could become more
widespread through the week resulting in possible Heat Advisories.

Regardless, please take extra precautions if you work or spend
time outside in the afternoon. Stay hydrated and take breaks in
the shade or an air conditioned building. Limit strenuous outdoor
activities and check up on the elderly, sick and those without
air conditioning. Never leave children or pets unattended in a
vehicle...look before you lock!
