NWS: Heat indices in triple-digits this week, slim chance of rain Tuesday

The National Weather Service in San Angelo said Tuesday that heat index values are expected to be in the 100-105 degree range Tuesday afternoon across West Central Texas. With humidity levels remaining high, combined with temperatures in the mid to upper-90s, it’s going to be a hot week.

A very slim chance of thunderstorms are possible in the region from approximately 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday, but forecasters say chances for any precipitation are less than 20 percent.

A combination of high humidity and heat will make outdoor activities possibly uncomfortable. The NWS reminds the public to drink plenty of water and take frequent breaks in the shade or indoors, if participating in outdoor activities this week.

The remainder of the week will mirror Tuesday’s forecast (minus the slight rain chance). High temperatures will be in the mid to upper-90s and lows will remain in the low to mid-70s.
