Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 3:46 AM CDT Aug. 16, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory in effect from noon today to 7 PM CDT this
evening...

The National Weather Service in Corpus Christi has issued a heat
advisory, which is in effect from noon today to 7 PM CDT this
evening.

* Temperature... maximum heat index values will range from 110 to
116 degrees.

* Impacts... prolonged outdoor activity without taking precautions,
such as drinking plenty of non-alcoholic liquids, and taking
frequent breaks from the heat in air conditioned buildings, may
result in heat exhaustion or even heat stroke.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory means that heat indices of 110 degrees or higher
are expected over most of the area for at least two hours.
Prolonged exposure combined with physical activity could cause
heat exhaustion and even heat stroke. The elderly, the very
Young, the sick, and people with heart conditions are most at
risk in extreme heat.

Reduce, eliminate, or reschedule strenuous activities to the
coolest times of the day. If you must be outside, reduce your
activities, and take frequent breaks preferably in an air
conditioned area. Wear lightweight, light-colored clothing.
Drink plenty of non-alcoholic liquids, preferably water, even if
you do not feel thirsty.
