...Elevated heat index values continue into the weekend...

Afternoon heat index values will peak during the afternoons in
the 104 to 108 degree range for much of South Central Texas today
through Saturday. The heat index in some isolated spots east of
I-35 could reach up to 110 degrees for a brief time. These
elevated heat index values could become more widespread Friday and
Saturday 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...even for a couple minutes...and remember to look before
you lock!
