Canyon Lake area is under a heat advisory from 1 to 9 p.m. today.
The advisory was issued earlier today for areas along/west of U.S. 281.
Near record heat is expected with elevated heat indices. Highs of between 101 to 102 degrees are forecast.
The public is asked to limit strenuous outdoor activities, drink plenty of water (even when not thirsty), take frequent breaks out of the sun, wear loose-fitting clothing, spend time in air conditioning and in the shade, and to never leave children or pets unattended in vehicles.
Vulnerable populations include pregnant women, newborns, children, the elderly and those with chronic illness.
For the rest of the week expect dry and heat weather conditions with highs in the upper 90s to 102 degrees, the U.S. National Weather Service (NWS) Austin-San Antonio said.
On Wednesday highs will range from 99 to 101 degrees. Temperatures will fall slightly into the high nineties on Thursday.
Things heat up again on Friday and Saturday as near record heat/elevated heat indices are expected. Temperatures will range from 100 to 102 degrees.
Expect more of the same on Sunday, when highs could reach 103 degrees.
There is no chance of rain for at least the next week, NWS said.
Only 4.58-inches of rain have fallen between Jan. 1 and June 5, the ninth-driest start to a year.
“Some folks are drawing comparisons with 2011 in Texas,” NWS said in a Facebook post. “Drought is not as bad/widespread as it was at this time of that year, but it’ll be a hot summer.”
