SAN ANTONIO — An Excessive Heat Warning is in effect for San Antonio beginning Sunday at 1 p.m. through Monday at 8 p.m. according to the National Weather Service. A Heat Advisory has also been issued for parts of the Hill Country beginning Sunday at 1 p.m. through Monday at 8 p.m.

Temperatures will be as high as 105 degrees, but feels-like temperatures are threatening to reach 110 when factoring in humidity.  This means we could break our record high temperature of 103 degrees set back in 2020. In fact, the next couple of days we could see temperature records broken. 

Be mindful of those outdoor activities today with dangerous heat levels and pay close attention to high risk individuals such as elderly and young children.

The National Weather Services says the advisory will be in place for the I-35 corridor, Coastal Plains and portions of the Hill Country. Hondo, Pearsall, Del Rio, New Braunfels and Pleasanton are included in the affected region. 

Here are some tips provided by the National Weather Service:

  • Drink plenty of water. 
  • Take frequent breaks from the sun if you plan to be outside, and check up on relatives and neighbors. 
  • Limit strenuous activity to the early morning or evening hours. 
  • Don't leave young children or pets alone in cars.

As San Antonio prepares for the scorching temperatures, cooling centers are preparing to open and accommodate residents. Here's a map of those 57 cooling centers
