This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for South-Central Texas..

.DAY ONE...Tonight.

Locations generally along and east of Interstate 35 and along the
Rio Grande will see afternoon heat index values of 102 to 107
degrees again today. Prolonged exposure to the heat and exertion
outdoors without proper hydration and other precautionary actions
may result in heat related illness.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday.

Elevated heat index values will continue along and southeast of
the Balcones Escarpment and along the Rio Grande through early
next week, with peak values ranging from 103 to 107 degrees
during the afternoon hours.

We are monitoring the remnants of what was Tropical Storm Harvey,
currently located across the western Caribbean Sea. Conditions are
favorable for re-development into a tropical cyclone over the next
5 days. There remains considerable uncertainty on where this
system will track through the southwest Gulf of Mexico and what,
if any, impacts occur in South Central Texas. If moisture from
the system makes it up into South Central Texas there will be a
potential for heavy rainfall Friday through Sunday. Check back
frequently through the week for updates.


Spotter activation is not anticipated.
