Maverick County Emergency Coordinator informs of Excessive Heat Advisory

High temperatures today are expected to range from 100 to near
107 degrees across South Central Texas. An Excessive Heat Warning
has been issued for Llano, Burnet, Williamson, and Travis counties
for this afternoon and early evening. A Heat Advisory is in
effect for a good portion of the rest of the central CWA.

Regardless of warnings and advisories, all of South Central Texas
will be hot today. Take extra precautions if you must work or
spend time outside. Wear light weight and loose fitting
clothing, drink plenty of water, and take frequent breaks,
preferably in an air conditioned area. When possible reschedule
strenuous activities during the morning or mid evening hours.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in
vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during
hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a
matter of minutes. Look before you lock!

Saturday through Thursday.

High temperatures are expected to continue gradually warming
through the weekend and into early next week, peaking Sunday and
Monday. Excessive Heat Warnings and Heat Advisories are in effect
for portions of the Hill Country and the I-35 corridor through
Sunday and these will likely be extended into Monday. Additional
counties could be added to the Excessive Heat Warning for Sunday
and Monday.
