...HIGH HEAT INDEX VALUES EXPECTED ACROSS DEEP SOUTH TEXAS THIS
AFTERNOON...

THE COMBINATION OF HOT SUMMERTIME TEMPERATURES AND ELEVATED DEW
POINTS WILL PRODUCE WIDESPREAD HEAT INDEX VALUES BETWEEN 105 AND
109 DEGREES FOR A FEW HOURS THIS AFTERNOON ACROSS MUCH OF DEEP
SOUTH TEXAS. THE HEAT INDICES WILL THEN START TO FALL AS SUNSET
APPROACHES AND THE TEMPERATURES START DROPPING.

WHEN OUTDOORS...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...SINCE TEMPERATURES IN CAR INTERIORS CAN REACH LETHAL
VALUES IN A MATTER OF MINUTES.
