SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – The National Weather service predicts “oppressive heat” today in the San Antonio area with a high of about 102 degrees, but it’ll feel a lot hotter than the official temperature.
“Because of the humidity, we are going to be reaching heat indices of 108 to 112,” said meteorologist Orlando Bermudez with the National Weather Service.
And the extreme heat will continue Tuesday.
“We’re expecting a similar pattern Tuesday with another possible heat advisory ,” said Bermudez.
Prolonged exposure to the heat could lead to dehydration, heat exhaustion or heat stroke, so Bermudez advises limiting strenuous outdoor activities. That’s important to note with schools back in session and athletes getting ready for the start of the high school football season later this week.
If you work outdoors, take breaks in the shade as much as possible. Check on the elderly and the sick, especially those without air conditioning, and look before you lock your vehicle. Don’t leave children or pets in a hot car.
