Extreme Heat Warning in Effect Through Tuesday


SAN ANGELO – Monday and Tuesday will be the hottest days of the week with temperatures reaching near 110 degrees in San Angelo and across West Texas so meteorologists with the National Weather Service office in San Angelo have issued an Excessive Heat Warning until 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Dangerously hot conditions are forecast with high temperatures between 105 and 109 degrees across the Concho Valley, Big Country and Heartland.  The extreme heat will significantly increase the possibility of heat related illnesses, especially for anyone working or recreating outdoors. 

Experts advise residents to stay in an air conditioned building.  If you must go outside, drink plenty of fluids, wear lightweight clothing, take plenty of breaks in the shade and check frequently on vulnerable friends and neighbors.  

It cannot be stressed enough to never, ever, under any circumstances leave pets or children in a hot car.  That can lead to an agonizing death. 

This may be the hottest 48 hours of the year for West Texas, so take this warning seriously.
