The San Antonio Metropolitan Health District issued a heat advisory for the Juneteenth weekend as temperatures are expected to remain in the upper 90s through Sunday. Heat index values could reach up to 104 degrees by Monday. On top of that, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas is also asking residents to reduce their energy consumption to avoid the need for rotating outages.

To help San Antonians beat the heat, the city and Bexar County are opening cooling centers at area senior and community centers and libraries.
