...Heat index values of 106 to 110 degrees across the lower Texas
coast today...

The combination of warm temperatures and high dewpoints will
produce heat index values of 106 to 110 degrees across portions of
the lower Texas coast today. A few locations may briefly reach
heat index values of 111 degrees for less than two hours.
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.
