...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
110 DEGREES FOR A FEW HOURS THIS AFTERNOON ACROSS MUCH OF DEEP
SOUTH TEXAS. SOME ISOLATED AREAS MAY SEE THE HEAT INDEX VALUES
REACH INTO THE 108 TO 111 DEGREE RANGE FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS. THE
HEAT INDICES WILL THEN START TO FALL AS SUNSET APPROACHES.

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.
