...High heat index values expected today...

Very warm temperatures coupled with high humidity will produce
heat index values between 103 and 107 degrees. A heat advisory
may yet be required later today if heat index values of 108 or
higher become likely.

Whether or not heat advisories are issued, you need to protect
yourself and others from the impacts of the heat. If outside, stay
hydrated, take breaks in the shade as often as possible and limit
strenuous activities. If driving, never leave kids, pets or
anyone with limited mobility alone in a vehicle for even a few
minutes as rapidly rising temperatures could reach dangerous or
even deadly levels. Remember to look before you lock! Know the
signs of heat stress and seek medical attention if you suspect
that you or someone else is experiencing heat illness.

...Elevated Heat Indices Continue this Afternoon...

Afternoon heat index values will peak in the 101 to 107 degree
range for a large portion of South Central Texas. A few locations
along and east of Interstate 35 and Interstate 37 could see heat
index values this afternoon around 108 degrees. Prolonged exposure
to the heat and exertion outdoors without proper hydration and
other precautionary actions may result in heat related illness.

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!

...Heat indices between 105 and 109 degrees are expected today...

The combination of warm temperatures and high dewpoints will
produce heat indices between 105 and 109 degrees today. A few
areas will experience heat indices around 110 degrees for an hour
or two, mainly over a few areas east of Highway 281.

Residents with outdoor activities planned are urged to 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 under any circumstances.
This is especially true during warm or hot weather when car
interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.

...COASTAL FLOODING POSSIBLE THROUGH THE WEEKEND...

Coastal flooding, associated with a combination of high tides and
higher than normal water levels, will be a possibility through
the weekend. The greatest potential for coastal flooding impacts
will be during the peak daily high tide, which will occur during
the mid- to late-afternoon hours the next several days.

Observed water levels at the Honolulu tidal station continue to be
much higher than predicted, and are currently running about 0.8
feet higher than predicted values. Visit tidesandcurrents.noaa.gov
for observed and forecast tides and water levels in your area.

Impacts may include flooding of beach areas that are normally
dry, salt water inundation of typically vulnerable low-lying
roads, docks, boat ramps and other coastal infrastructure. The
potential for coastal flooding will diminish early next week as
the peak daily tides diminish.
