MONTGOMERY COUNTY HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL FRIDAY

     07/06/2016 – THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE, Issuing Office: Houston/Galveston, 3:27am CDT, Wed Jul 6

    SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT UNTIL 1AM CDT FRI

    … MAXIMUM AFTERNOON HEAT INDICES BETWEEN 103 AND 108 DEGREES WILL CONTINUE ACROSS SOUTHEAST TEXAS THROUGH THE WEEK…

    THE COMBINATION OF AFTERNOON MIDDLE 90 AMBIENT TEMPERATURES AND RELATIVELY HIGH DEW POINTS WILL PRODUCE HEAT INDICES IN THE 103 TO 106 DEGREE RANGE INLAND… 105 TO 109 DEGREES ALONG THE COASTLINE. HEAT INDICES WILL BE HIGHER ALONG AND NEAR THE COAST DUE TO THE HIGHER MOISTURE. A HEAT ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FOR THE COASTAL COUNTIES THAT ARE FORECAST TO REACH OR SLIGHTLY EXCEED 108 DEGREES THIS AFTERNOON. DESPITE THE FACT THAT 108 F WILL NOT BE ACHIEVED FURTHER INLAND, FOLKS SHOULD STILL TAKE THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID HEAT ILLNESS IF SPENDING ANY APPRECIABLE TIME OUTDOORS. THE TWO MAIN COURSES OF ACTION ONE CAN TAKE TO AVOID HEAT EXHAUSTION OR HEAT STROKE IS TO LIMIT STRENUOUS OUTDOOR ACTIVITY DURING THE LATE MORNING THROUGH EARLY EVENING HOURS AND TO DRINK ALOT OF WATER.

    PERSONS ENGAGING IN OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES ARE STRONGLY URGED TO DRINK PLENTY OF WATER… WEAR LIGHT WEIGHT AND LIGHT COLORED CLOTHING… AND TO TAKE FREQUENT BREAKS FROM THE HEAT. LIMIT STRENUOUS ACTIVITIES AND STAY IN SHADED AREAS AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE. YOUNG CHILDREN AND PETS SHOULD NEVER BE LEFT UNATTENDED IN VEHICLES UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES AS CAR INTERIORS CAN REACH LETHAL TEMPERATURES IN JUST A MATTER OF MINUTES. ALSO… MAKE SURE THOSE THAT ARE OLDER AND THOSE THAT ARE SICK ARE LIVING IN AIR CONDITIONED ENVIRONMENTS.

    LISTEN TO NOAA WEATHER RADIO OR YOUR LOCAL MEDIA FOR THE LATEST UPDATES CONCERNING THIS ONGOING EARLY JULY HEAT WAVE.
