Another hot and rather humid day with elevated heat index values is expected across our area. High temperatures of 95 to 100 Hill Country and 100 to 105 South Central Texas are forecast. Heat index values of 104 to 108 are expected southeast of the Escarpment with isolated spots briefly reaching near 110 east of I-35. Isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible south of San Antonio and may produce gusty winds.
Above normal temperatures and humid conditions will continue through the weekend, then temperatures drop closer to normal next week as an unseasonable late July "cool" front moves across our area. Afternoon heat index values of 104 to 108 are expected southeast of the Escarpment Friday and Saturday with isolated spots east of I-35 briefly reaching near 110. The "cool" front will bring isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms beginning Saturday night and continuing Sunday through Tuesday. Please take frequent breaks and drink plenty of water while working outside.
