NWS Extends Heat Advisory

It’s deja vu, as far as the heat is concerned.

The National Weather Service has extended the heat advisory through 7 pm Tuesday for South Central Texas, including San Antonio and Austin.

Accu Weather predicts a high of 100, but heat indexes could soar from 108 to 112.
Remember to drink plenty of water  and try to take cool breaks during outdoor activities.  Do your outdoor chores early in the morning or in the evening.

Prolonged exposure to the heat could lead to dehydration, heat exhaustion or heat stroke.

Signs of heat exhaustion include dizziness, clammy skin, nausea,  rapid or  weak pulse and muscle cramps.

With a heat stroke, you may experience a throbbing headache, red, hot dry skin, no sweating, and you may lose consciousness.

If you experience any of these symptoms, get to a cooler, air-conditioned place. Drink water and take a cool shower or use cold  compresses.
