‘Stay Cool and Hydrated’: 100-Degree Temperatures Return Today with Record Highs Expected This Week
‘Stay cool and hydrated.’
The U.S. National Weather Service Austin-San Antonio warns the mercury will climb back into the 100s today after a brief stint in the 90s.
Expect temperatures of between 100-103 in many areas. Record highs could be broken on Wednesday and Thursday.
Dry conditions will prevail.
Although heat indices could reach 108 in the coastal plains, drier air will keep heat indices lower along and west of I-35.
“It’s been both warmer and drier than normal thus far this summer,” NWS said on Facebook. “For many locations in our region it has been the warmest summer on record.”
Residents and visitors planning outdoor activities are urged to drink plenty of water, wear lightweight and light-colored clothing, and to take frequent breaks from the heat.
Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles.
