...Saturday Summer Swelter to Produce Feels Like Temperatures
Between 105 and 110 Degrees...

The combination of a persistent dome of oppressive heat with just
enough surface moisture will push afternoon heat index values to
between 105 and 110 in most areas, with the highest values along
the Rio Grande between Roma/Rio Grande City and just west of
Brownsville. This includes the City of McAllen. The highest heat
index will occur between 1 and 5 PM.

Though temperatures will fall into the 80s after sunset, heat
index values will remain above 90 degrees until midnight in the
urban corridor of the Rio Grande Valley.

Be sure to drink plenty of water...before you get thirsty. Wear
lightweight and light colored clothing. Reserve strenuous exercise
for early morning or evening hours.

Stay in air conditioned locations if possible. At risk
residents...including small children...the elderly and
infirm...should remain in air conditioned locations.

Remember to look before you lock your vehicle. Do not leave
children or pets in a hot car. Temperatures can rise above 130
degrees in minutes when the actual temperature outside in the
shade is above 100 degrees...rapidly increasing the chance for
heat stroke and possible death.
