HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Monday’s expected temperatures in Houston and surrounding areas prompted weather officials to issue a Heat Advisory for the area.

The advisory was issued for parts of Houston Monday, with dangerous temperatures expected well within the triple digits.

Weather professionals conveyed to the public the dangers of staying outside for extended periods of time without proper hydration and methods of cooling the body.

The following counties were included in Monday’s heat advisory: Harris, Liberty, Galveston, Brazoria, Chambers, Matagorda and Jackson.

Not only were temperatures expected to soar well within the triple digits, but those high temperatures were also expected to be accompanied with high levels of humidity. Temperatures are expected to reach between 105-110 degrees Monday afternoon.

Additional weather reports for the Houston region indicated that high pressure will remain front and center , which will keep the greater Houston area hot and mostly dry through Friday.

With extreme heat, comes the risks of heat stroke or heat cramps, especially when doing something active, like running, walking or yard work. Experts and medical professionals ask that you limit your outdoor activities if possible, drink plenty of hydrating fluids, check on elderly neighbors and friends and ensure pets have cool liquids to drink and adequate shade to keep cool.
