Heat advisory in effect but not as hot in Concho Valley

SAN ANGELO – Afternoon high temperatures in the Concho Valley will again reach over 100 degrees on Monday and a heat advisory is in effect, but it will be noticeably cooler than the weekend.

The high temperature in San Angelo on Saturday was 107 degrees and the maximum temperature on Sunday afternoon reached 108 degrees. The maximum temperature Monday afternoon is expected to reach 103 degrees.

The heat advisory is in effect from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday for northern Concho Valley counties, including Sterling, Coke, Runnels and Tom Green counties, including the city of San Angelo. Temperatures will be above the 100 degree mark in southern Concho Valley counties, but conditions do not reach the threshold where a heat advisory would be issued there.

A heat advisory means that temperature, humidity and wind speed combine to create dangerous heat conditions and heat-related illnesses are possible.

Those who work outdoors should take frequent breaks, drink plenty of fluids and wear appropriate clothing. Anyone who ventures outdoors should take precautions to prevent heat-related illnesses. And make sure all pets outside have plenty of fresh water and shade.

Temperatures are expected to exceed 100 degrees every afternoon for the next ten days with the exception of Wednesday when the maximum is expected at 99 degrees.

There is no rain forecast for the next ten days. Tom Green County Commissioners will consider reinstating the burning ban on Tuesday and will also vote on banning aerial fireworks for Independence Day weekend.

This is a serious and dynamic weather situation. Check back often for updates.
