...TRIPLE DIGIT HEAT INDICES EXPECTED THROUGH THE AFTERNOON...

TEMPERATURES ALREADY IN THE UPPER 90S AND EVEN 100 EARLY THIS
AFTERNOON HAVE RESULTED IN HEAT INDICES FROM 100 TO 109 ACROSS
MUCH OF SOUTH CENTRAL TEXAS. WITH MUCH OF THE AFTERNOON STILL LEFT
TO CONTINUE HEATING THE AREA...EXPECT THESE HEAT INDICES TO
CONTINUE OR RISE THROUGHOUT THE AFTERNOON.

HEAT INDICES OF 105 TO 109 WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH SOME LOCATIONS
LOCALLY SEEING VALUES HIGHER THIS AFTERNOON. A HEAT ADVISORY MAY
BE NEEDED LATER THIS AFTERNOON IF TEMPERATURES AND HEAT INDICES
CONTINUE TO RISE BEYOND THESE EXPECTATIONS.

IN ADDITION TO HIGH HEAT INDICES...DIRECT EXPOSURE TO SUNLIGHT CAN
FURTHER TOLL ON THE BODY DURING TIMES OF HIGH HEAT INDEX SO MAKE
SURE TO TAKE FREQUENT SHADED BREAKS IF WORKING OUTSIDE. ALSO...DO
NOT LEAVE ANY CHILDREN OR PETS UNATTENDED IN VEHICLES FOR ANY
AMOUNT OF TIME AS TEMPERATURES WILL RISE AT A RAPID RATE
IMMEDIATELY AFTER TURNING THE VEHICLE OFF.
