...HEAT INDEX VALUES BETWEEN 105 AND 109 DEGREES ARE EXPECTED
TODAY ACROSS THE BRUSH COUNTRY AND SOUTHERN COASTAL BEND...

The combination of warm temperatures and high dewpoints will
produce heat indices between 105 and 109 degrees today across the
Brush Country and Southern Coastal Bend, roughly areas west of a
line from George West to Alice to Kingsville.

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.
