If you hadn't heard, it's summer, it's Texas and it's hot.
Official records are based on the temperature recorded at DFW Airport, and the mercury rose to 100 degrees at 2:43 p.m. Tuesday.
Temperatures hovered right around 100 degrees in North Texas, but felt as warm as 103 at DFW when heat index values were considered. The heat index recorded at Alliance Airport was 106 degrees, the highest in North Texas.
Texas Health Harris Methodist Fort Worth reported three heat-related cases Tuesday. MedStar paramedics packed extra intravenous fluids and disposable ice pack in their ambulances ahead of the triple-digit temperatures.
"The most important thing in hot weather is maintain good hydration. Drink plenty of liquids," said Dr. Jeff Beeson associate medical director for MedStar.
The bottom line, if you don't have to be in the heat, don't go out in it.
