SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — The San Antonio Metro is now under a Heat Advisory as hot temperatures continue across much of Texas.
The National Weather Service says the current Heat Advisory also affects the I-35 Corridor and portions of the Rio Grande Plains until 9 p.m.
The greater San Antonio area could see a heat index of 109-112 degrees and caution is advised when outdoors.
Note: Heat-related illness will remain a significant risk for those working or playing outside for extended periods of time, especially from 10 a.m. through sunset.
Safety measures include drinking lots of water, taking frequent breaks, preferably in places with air conditioning, and wearing light-colored and loose fitting clothes.
Urgent: It is critical to check the backseat of a car where children or pets have been riding after parking. The temperature inside a parked car with windows rolled up can rise as many as 20 degrees in a few as 10 minutes if parked outside, especially between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
