It's still technically spring but hot and humid Central Texas weather has already arrived. The general rule of thumb for this Advisory is when the maximum heat index temperature is expected to be 100° or higher for at least 2 days, and night time air temperatures will not drop below 75°; however, these criteria vary across the country, especially for areas that are not used to unsafe heat conditions. A previous advisory was issued to last until 7 p.m. Saturday. "Expect little cooling overnight". The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a risky situation in which heat illness is likely.Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors.Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside.

Tuesday through Friday's temperatures should remain the same with highs in the 90s and lows in the 70s and mostly clear and sunny skies. Children, the elderly, and people with chronic ailments are the most susceptible to heat related illness.
