Even though we’ve had stretches of hot and humid weather throughout this spring, we have yet to officially hit 100 degrees at San Antonio International Airport. That will likely change early this week. Here are the main takeaways:

  • Abundant sunshine will allow for rapidly rising temperatures, especially Monday and Tuesday
  • Humidity will be fairly high, too, creating a dangerous combination which could lead to heat exhaustion
  • A very weak front will arrive late Tuesday afternoon, dropping highs from the triple-digits back into the upper-90s for the remainder of the week

Even though we’re used to the heat as Texans, it’s important to note that higher humidity could potentially be dangerous. Please remember these tips to keep yourself and your loved ones safe:

  • Never leave pets or kids inside a parked vehicle
  • Drink plenty of water and stay hydrated
  • Reduce strenuous outdoor activities
  • Find shade or air conditioned places
  • Wear lightweight, light-colored clothing
  • Check on the elderly, who are more susceptible to heat related illness
