A heat advisory has been issued for parts of the Bay Area today and residents are asked to be aware of the high temperatures and stay out of the sun, according to the National Weather Service.

This week's heat wave, which brought record-high temperatures throughout the region, is expected to continue today with temperatures in the mid 90s in the Santa Clara Valley, the North Bay and East Bay hills, the East Bay valleys and interior Monterey County, NWS forecaster Mark Strobin said.

Lower temperatures are expected on the coast, Strobin said.

The heat advisory will remain in effect from noon to 7 p.m., and residents are encouraged to remain in cool, indoor areas, drink plenty of water, and check up on relatives and neighbors, Strobin said.
