The heat index will be between 90 and 108 degrees for two consecutive days, making the notice a level III advisory, a Metro Health news release states.

The Battle of Flowers parade will wind its way through downtown San Antonio around noon Friday, when the National Weather Service projects it to be 94 degrees.

Food and music was the order of the evening Friday, April 21, 2017, in San Antonio’s central suburb Alamo Heights for Fiesta’s Annual Alamo Heights Night. All the usual suspects abounded, from funnel cakes and turkey legs to sausage on a stick and gorditas.

“Particularly with all the Fiesta activities taking place on Friday and Saturday, it is imperative that people drink plenty of water to prevent complications from the heat,” said Dr. Vincent Nathan, Metro Health assistant director.

Locals began claiming prime parade spots as early as Monday morning, and sightings of chairs, campsites and bleachers have slowly appeared on Broadway throughout the week.
