THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTHEAST TEXAS.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

VERY WARM TEMPERATURES COUPLED WITH HIGH HUMIDITY LEVELS WILL
PRODUCE DANGEROUS HEAT INDEX VALUES. ALTHOUGH THE ACTUAL
TEMPERATURE WILL WARM INTO THE MID 90S TODAY...THE HUMIDITY
COMBINED WITH THE TEMPERATURE WILL MAKE IT FEEL LIKE IT IS BETWEEN
102 AND 108 DEGREES. THERE WILL BE SOME AREAS NEAR THE COAST...
PRIMARILY FROM EDNA TO RICHMOND AND SOUTH TOWARD THE COAST...
WHERE THE HEAT INDEX VALUES WILL APPROACH 110 DEGREES TODAY. IF
OUTDOORS TODAY...PLEASE USE CAUTION AND AVOID STRENUOUS ACTIVITY
IF POSSIBLE. FIND AIR CONDITIONING TO COOL OFF DURING PEAK HEATING
AND WEAR LIGHT WEIGHT AND LOOSE FITTING CLOTHING. STAY HYDRATED BY
DRINKING PLENTY OF WATER. THIS SUMMER HAS BEEN RELATIVELY COOL BY
TEXAS STANDARDS AND THIS BURGEONING HEAT WAVE COULD COME AS A BIT
OF A SHOCK. PLEASE TAKE PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID HEAT STRESS. A FEW
SHOWERS WILL BE POSSIBLE LATE THIS AFTERNOON. IF SHOWERS DO
DEVELOP...THEY SHOULD HELP TO COOL TEMPERATURES ALTHOUGH THEY WILL
DO LITTLE TO LOWER THE HUMIDITY.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY

VERY WARM TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED FOR MUCH OF THE WEEK AHEAD.
HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN IN THE MID 90S THROUGH THURSDAY AND
THEN WARM INTO THE UPPER 90S BY THE WEEKEND AND POSSIBLY 100
DEGREE BY NEXT MONDAY. HEAT INDEX VALUES WILL RANGE FROM 102 TO
109 DEGREE FOR MUCH OF THE WEEK.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED.
