... Elevated heat index values for the remainder of this week into
this weekend...

Elevated heat index values will continue through at least
Saturday as high pressure builds back over south central Texas.
Heat index values will approach but remain below heat advisory
criteria of 108 in the coastal plains and 110 in the Rio Grande
plains. Elsewhere... heat index values will be in the 100 to 105
range... except lower in parts of The Hill Country. The highest
threat day for heat advisories is Saturday. The highest threat
area is near the coastal plains. Humidities will decrease Sunday
into early next week bringing lower heat index values.

In addition to high heat index values... direct exposure to
sunlight can also contribute to dehydration and an increased
likelihood of heat related illness. Take extra precautions if you
plan to be outside. When possible... reschedule strenuous afternoon
activities for the early morning or evening hours. Know the signs
and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

If you are outdoors... drink plenty of water... wear light weight
and light colored clothing... and take frequent breaks from the
heat. Never leave a child or pet unattended in a vehicle... as
interiors will reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes
after turning off the air conditioning. Beat the heat... check the
back seat!
