Additional Heat Advisories have been issued for today across northeast Texas and deep south Texas through this evening.  For south Texas, heat index readings topping 109 to 112 degrees will be likely as we head into the afternoon hours. For northeast Texas, you’ll be looking at heat indices topping out around 105 to 107.  For north central Texas and the DFW area, current heat advisories have been extended through Saturday evening with additional counties added south of the DFW metroplex including Waco.  This dangerous heat will not be going away anytime soon with temps continuing to rise a degree or two each day into the weekend.  We expect to see additional rounds of advisories issued for tomorrow and continuing through the weekend and into next week.  Stay hydrated, check your backseat, check on your neighbors, check on your pets…stay cool and stay safe!
