...HEAT INDEX VALUES BETWEEN 105 AND 110 DEGREES ARE EXPECTED
TODAY...

The combination of warm temperatures and high dewpoints today will
produce Heat Index values or "feels like" temperatures between
105 and 110 degrees across portions of Deep South Texas this
afternoon. Some locations in Starr County may reach Heat Index
values of 108 to 112 degrees for an hour or two this afternoon.

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.
